Here's the sweater:
I took out the scissors and cut it straight up the front. Then CAREFULLY took it to the sewing machine, as this is a knit sweater, and the edges can start to un-knit/unravel very easily!
Took out my knit/jersey needles:
And started sewing up the edges, folding in the raw edge as I went. I sewed with a zig zag stitch, as I wanted to catch in all the raw/cut edges of the sweater.
(thought about pressing carefully to get out the 'lettuce edge' look, but decided I liked it.
Got myself a cozy cardigan to layer on these crazy spring days when the weather can't decide what to do....wind? cold? warm? rain?
