    Wow: i had the same exact sweater. Same colour. And no matter what…it keeps on shrinking. I steam iron it out every time…to no avail. I was thinking of making it into a cardigan, with ruffles along the neck.

    If I succeed, I’ll post the pictures. Thank’s for telling me the poor Benetton sweater had hope!

    PS: is it just me or Benetton is putting increasingly crappier wool in their sweaters??

      Oh I am glad there is a fellow sufferer out there!
      I wouldn’t know about the current choice of fabric quality of Benetton. Haven’t bought anything from them for ages. The sweater was a gift.

      I like the one with the ruffles. It looks fabulous. (Thanks for the link). But I don’t think you’’ll have enough of the sweater material for that, unless you want to ruffle it with other fabric. Would love to see your try.
