McCall’s 6796

We had a very long beautiful fall, and many of us got lulled into the nice weather.  Then one morning 2 weeks before Thanksgiving, it started snowing.  Nine inches later it stopped and I started thinking about sweaters.  Enter McCall’s 6796.

First I made up view B in a piece of sweater knit I bought at a thrift store for 2 bucks.  I cut a size 14 and sewed it up straight out of the envelop.

The fabric is more of a blue green, but it doesn’t show up very well in this flashed photo.  It is probably a polyester/acrylic blend.  I did a burn test when I got it home from the store and it definitely is man-made fibers.

The next view I made up was view D.  I made it out of THIS fabric from Gorgeous Fabrics.

I cut the collar on the cross grain rather than the lengthwise grain per the pattern.  I like how the stripes turned out. The one thing I don’t like is that I missed the side stripes by one so they don’t match up. My husband, says that no one will notice….no one who doesn’t sew that is.  Oh well, I still really like the top.  This is a very easy pattern, and it sews up quickly.  I will probably make a few more of view B.  Not sure if I will make another view D.  The collar is pretty distinctive.

Now that I have some warm tops sewn up, the weather has warmed up again.  Today was in the high 50’s.  Go figure.

    1. Thanks Rhonda. Yes, it will return for sure, but for know, I am loving the warmer temps. We have a big charity run on Sunday so I hope it holds at least until then. 🙂
