Begin with our “Introduction to Knit Fabrics” and “Knit Fabric Principles” lessons first. You will learn about knit structure, stretch ratio and how to choose the best knit fabric for a particular design. Then, apply this knowledge and create your own set of knit slopers for the different knit stretch ratios.
