Refashioning is not normally my thing, but I’ve had this sweater for ages. It’s lovely, warm, thick, all wool, and all kinds of great things, but the tight scratchy wool neckline made me want to jump out of my skin every time I wore it. For a while, I was looking for a replacement for it, but every 100% wool fisherman sweater that I saw was prohibitively expensive. Sooo, I took some time to refashion it into a cardigan. I edged the neckline and front opening with green grosgrain, and added grosgrain trimmed welt pockets. I just kind of eyeballed the pocket placement. Unsurprisingly, they turned out uneven. I think I can live with it, though, to have a nice warm sweater to wear this cold winter.
Merry Christmas everyone! Thanks so much for reading my blog, and I hope Santa is good to you.
