When I need to understitch I usually will make a test and see if I like the traditional 1/8" straight stitch or if I prefer the wider 3 step zig-zag. More often than not I am like the way the 3 step zig-zag controls the fabric. I especially like it on the knit fabrics

Excellent tip! I am new to sewing with knits and have wondered about edgestitching. This makes perfect sense. Thanks!
