Ebay probably has the best selection and best prices for hard to find fabric like knit prints. Here are some specific eBay Stores that are some of my personal favorites:
Cute and Unique from cankorkmaz – Cute novelty print knits, and in my experience, you get a very generous yard (my cuts are often more like 50″.)
Purple Seamstress – Another seller with a good eye for novelty knit prints – plaids, retro, and more. I always get some sweet free stuff when I order, too.
Fabric Attack – awesome punk and novelty knit fabrics
Boutique Knit Fabrics – super cute collection of knits. Lots of stripes and polka dots!
Lycra Prints – Just like their name says, lycra prints, and lots of them for really reasonable prices. Their inventory isn’t well labeled, so you kind of have to go through everything to find what you want. Many of their fabrics are chlorine resistant, making them ideal for swimwear.
