Really, the twin needle is your best ally for sewing up knits on a traditional sewing machine! Don’t be afraid! There are a few things that I can show you to help you on your way to twin-needle rockstar status… Here is a link to a video where I explain different kinds of twin needles, how to thread up your sewing machine for twin needle sewing, a bit of troubleshooting advice, and lastly, comparing and contrasting with a coverstitch machine.
I realized that although I had said in my head that the numbers for the twin needle sizes (eg- 2.5, 4.0, 6.0, etc) are the distances in mm between the needles, those words never actually were said in my actual tutorial. Oops!
I had the honor of sharing this snippet of advice on Facebook’s Sly Fox Fabrics Sew Along group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/SlyFoxFabricsSAL/), so please give them some love! They have great fabrics and great sew alongs!!
