Believe it or not – this is my absolute favourite knit neckline. Why? It’s the easiest knit neckline around! Super easy, super quick. End of story :)
This is the neckline I recommend in most of my maternity patterns because it’s really the most straightforward and least fussy way of doing it – and it’s not confusing.
Here we go!
Basically, you’re just going to start with the raw neckline. Then fold 1/2″ towards the inside of the top, press it in place to help it to conform to the curve, and then topstitch using either a twin needle or a zig-zag stitch.
To give some stability and make the process even easier (I mean seriously, it’s already so easy!) – I also recommend using a fusible hemming tape. This is one of my favourite tricks! You simply fuse the tape between the folds of fabric using your iron, and it makes the whole neckline more stable, neater and wayyyy easier to sew.
It’s awesome. Try it, you’ll love it!
