Rib knit sewing challenge – Our Social Fabric

Rib knit sewing challenge

The OSF Team sew with rib knit fabric

To show you all the different ways that rib knit can be used, the Our Social Fabric team spent this week sewing lots of samples. 

Check out what we made below and let us know which patterns you like to use for rib knits in the comments.

Heidi made the Sew House Seven Toaster sweater (bust 31” to 65.5”) and hacked it into a dress. She completed her outfit with a So Sew Easy The Hoodie, which is a free downloadable pattern (bust finished measurements 36.5” to 52”).

Cornelia sewed up the Style Arc Anderson Knit Dress (bust 30.3” to 67.75”) which she shortened to be sweater length. We love the colour blocking on this sweater.

Gemma made up the Named Pattern Rauha Tee (bust 29 7/8” to 52 3/4”). The structure of the mid weight rib kit she chose really helps to show of the statement collar.

Colleen didn't stop at just one make. First she made the Sew House Toaster #1 sweater (bust 31” to 65.5”) and a self drafted tube skirt. Her second outfit was the Ellie and Mac I Love the 90s dress (bust 29” to 63”). So cute!
