KwikSew 2740 OOP

Turtlenecks. I love them for layering in the winter and KS 2740 has been my go-to pattern. I wanted one made of the sleeve fabric of the Vogue 8778 tunic that just came off the sewing machine.

Top Back

Just as I went to take these shots a ferocious wind storm blew up and my camera decided to FAIL at point and shoot.

OK, multiple shots later and let’s pretend it’s an “art shoot” for now. I’ll have to relearn all the manual settings (ha)

Top and Tunic

KwikSew 2740 is another pattern that has had a long life and I see that it is no longer listed in the active patterns at the KwikSew.McCalls.com website but is still offered for sale by other resellers and ebay. It’s worth chasing down for close fitting turtleneck tops.

About Mary Beth

I am fascinated by changing patterns and colored threads. I sew garments and am teaching myself to machine knit. Since selling the building that housed my workrooms, The Stitchery, I'm searching for a place to set up the knitting machines again. There must be room here somewhere!
