Does knit fabric fray?

Knit fabric doesn’t fray, which means that you don’t have to finish seams, which you would do with woven fabrics. Neither does knit get wrinkly, as much as woven fabrics usually do. They do shrink when washing for the first time, so you’ll want to pre-wash the fabric before cutting into it.

Does knit fabric curl to the right?

What happens if you don’t cut fabric on the Grainline?

What would happen? The fabric would sag and pull slightly in the direction of the diagonal, making for an unflattering finished garment. Therefore straightening the edge of grain is a very important, even if a bit tedious, task to do before cutting out pieces.

What will happen if you cut the pattern against the grain?

The grain will affect how the fabric moves as it’s pulled. It’s not uncommon to be given a direction like “cut against the grain”. If you make a mistake and sew along the bias or against the grain, then you could find your fabric starts to pucker in places. It may also start to stretch in areas that shouldn’t stretch.
