Embroidery on a Knit Hat
I have tried several ways to do embroidery on a knit hat but still am not satisfied. It's a knit beanie hat.
I use the cap frame and density of 3.8, turn off the stretch and central underlay. I use 15 for regular underlay.
What am I doing wrong?Amy's Answer
This is out of my area of expertise. I only to free motion embroidery on the machine, so I can't do hats in a cap frame. I do know that a strong stabilizer is crucial when doing machine embroidery on knit fabric. Is there someone reading this who does digital machine embroidery and can jump in here with some helpful comments?
If you're trying to do something on a knit winter cap, it might be better to try applique
or hand embroider with the duplicate stitch
