Knit fabrics are perfect for sewing comfortable, soft, and breathable garments. So if you’re searching for inspiration for your next sewing project, or want to add sewing with knits to your repertoire, then this post is for you! We’ve put together a list of pattern suggestions, from beginner-friendly to more challenging projects, to get you on your way.

Grainline Lark Tee:

The Lark Tee is a great pattern for beginners. You will learn how to sew with knits using straight seams and attach binding to your garment. With four neckline options and four sleeve lengths to choose from, you can create your perfect Tee!
