Hi I have been working on a knit tunic and it has a collar with a stand ...i have tried 2 types of interfacing and though they have the weight i require they are not liking my knit fabric....i stitch it in so it works but for future projects i was wondering what other options i have in a fusible....the knit is a beefy ottoman or automan knit it has very small rib lines in it..any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...thanks in advance...Chris

Knit interfacing; my fave is Sewing Supply's Sheer Elegance because it's a low temp fusible, very important on any knits with Lycra.

Another interfacing for knits is tricot, such as Sewing Supply's Pro-Tricot fusible.

And they happen to be on sale right now. (NAYY!)

I've used both types and they work beautifully.

I heart Woo (HimmyCat). Until we meet again, my beautiful little boy. I love you.
