Neighbor Sandy gifted me these 3 identical sweaters in 3 different colors!
I have always wanted to try and make a 2-tone sweater from 2 different sweaters and now here is my chance! I figured this would be a simple refashion since the black and red sweaters were identical.
I cut down the back of the red sweater.
Then I cut down the front of the sweater. Then repeated the same with the black sweater.
I flipped the pieces inside out and took 1 black and 1 red side. Then I pinned them together down the back and the front, with the help of my dress form.
I used a medium ball-point needle and streteched my stitch to 4.0mm- this was to help the sweater knit from becoming a ruffle!
Once both pieces were stitched together I took in the sides as well as the sleeves.
I am BEYOND happy with how this turned out!
Happy Refashioning, Crafting and Upscaling!!!
