Tips on using different types of Knit Fabrics:

Jersey Knit is a stretchier type of knit fabric but tends to roll when the edges are cut, making it more difficult to sew. To remedy this it is helpful to spray the fabric with starch and iron before cutting.

Interlock Knit is a more stable knit and while it doesn't stretch as much it tends to be more stable when sewing, does not roll when cut and does not require starching and ironing before cutting the fabric.
