Stoffvorstellung Nr. 10 - Zopfstrick

Fabric presentation no. 10 - cable knit

The evenings are getting cooler. We sit together on the couch with a glass of wine and delicious cheese. We laugh about what used to be and look forward to what is yet to come. I'm wrapped up in a cable knit sweater and cozy socks. The moment - perfect....


Are you still knitting or already sewing? Here you can combine both at once!

A thick cozy cable knit wool fabric with an incredible basis weight of 450g/m² and is 120cm wide. Not only does it keep you warm, its perfectly knitted braids also ensure an elegant and timeless look. The yarn is slightly mottled and we offer matching cuffs of the same color to round off your sewing work perfectly.

It's up to you whether it's a complete part or the cable knit with matching fleece.

When ordering, please note that the fabric shrinks by around 15%, depending on the washing method. We recommend washing with cold wool or by hand with little friction. The edges should be finished to prevent the fabric from fraying.

Sewing Notes:

  • should be neatened before washing as the stitches can come loose

  • Super stretch needles

  • Sewing machine (use walking foot and reduce presser foot pressure if possible)

  • Overlock (possibly set differential feed higher, against wave formation)

  • sew with a stretch stitch

Many of you (and me too) have sewn arm and leg warmers from leftovers. That's really great too. But I think it's actually the greatest as a warm cuddly sweater. What do you think?
