What symbol is a stretch stitch?

What stitch has the most stretch?

Triple (or Straight Stretch) Stitch – this stitch looks like a regular straight stitch, but each stitch is sewn three times, giving the seam more stretch.

What do you use stretch stitch for?

The Straight Stretch Stitch can be used to reinforce seams of sportswear in stretch and non-stretch fabrics, and for curved seams which take a lot of strain. This stitch is stronger than regular straight stitch because it locks three times – forward, backward and forward again.

Does a zig-zag stitch stretch?

A zigzag stitch is a great way to seam knit fabrics. Its inherent stretch allows for the fabric to stretch and move without fear of popping a seam. On light to medium weight knits, try using a stitch length of 1.5 and a width of 5.
