Video: A Turtleneck Finish for Knits

Oct 26, 2008

with Sarah Veblen
An Online Extra to Threads #106

Many sewers are intimidated by knits, especially when it comes to sewing a pucker-free neckline. Because they must stretch over your head, and then lie flat, necklines present a unique set of challenges. But success is easily achievable, as Sarah Veblen, Sparks, Maryland, teacher and author, demonstrates in this video.

Read Sarah’s article, “Neckline Finishes for Knits,” in the April/May 2003 issue of Threads (#106), and watch her other video, A Neckline Binding for Knits.

    Excellent videos. I also watch "A neckline bindin for knits" just before I watched this one. Both videos complement each other very well. I particularly liked that Sarah sews the turtle neck on hew conventional machine first. It saves a lot of aggravation if you have to undo. Thank you.
