Notes on supplies: Medium weight jersey fabrics are perfect.  It is essential you choose a two-way stretch (your fabric needs to stretch vertically and horizontally). Also your sweater will retain its shape if there is 5-10% of lycra/nylon/elstain/etc in the fabric. Ensure For directional prints, large prints and fabrics with nap you purchase extra fabric. For best results - pre-wash your fabric to reduce shrinkage.
