Znok Design

I hope you don’t mind me paying all this attention to knits lately … since I started sewing with them for baby #2 they’ve been an obsession. These are from Znok Design of Sweden, and can be purchased directly from Znok, the U.S.-based Nature’s Fabrics, Vermiljoenshop in Belgium, and Crafty Mamas in Australia. (That should cover most of you!)

Those awesome bright retro European kid’s clothes can be quite expensive, so it’s nice to know you can sew your own at home thanks to the availability of prints like these. Znok’s jersey is a 95% cotton/5% spandex blend, some of the prints are interlock knits.

And hey, while we’re here, a little knit primer:

Jersey = thinner, rolls at the cut edges, has a wrong side.

Interlock = thicker, sturdier, less stretch, no rolling, no wrong side unless printed.

Rib Knit = no wrong side, no rolling, has the most stretch, use for bindings or main body fabric.

    You may not want this to post but I since you’re talking about knits… I hand dye cotton interlock, cotton/lycra, modal/cotton/lycra and more. Probably not for the baby but for mom!
