Sew two lines with a sewing machine on each side of the marked cutting line. Make sure the lines are roughly 1/2 inch apart. The stitched lines will hold the knitting in place to prevent unraveling.
Can you cut knitted fabric?
However, if you don’t own a rotary cutter or aren’t ready to use one just yet, you can cut your knits with scissors. Simply pin your pattern to your knit fabric and cut around the pattern edges, just as you would a woven fabric.
How do you cut a sweater with a belt?
Put on the belt around your waist, at the same height as you want the sweater to look as though it’s been tucked in. Tighten the belt over your knit – ensuring you still have room to breathe. Pull up the jumper under the belt so that just an inch or so of fabric remains below the belt.
