My first knit sweater out of repurposed yarn. It’s basically a tube with arms and a drawstring top… I wear it all the time. ;-)
Sorry for the limited photo, it’s a snapshot. As soon as I get my camera to work, I’ll add better pics!

Material Notes

silk/mohair/wool mix yarn repurposed from too-small store-bought sweater
pink ribbon





Knitty.com for the pattern

    Thank you all! @camilaustraul: It’s not hard to unmake a bought sweater, if you know how to knit, you know how to un-knit too… Heard of frogging? ;-) Do make sure you get a sweater that is knit properly, not one that is made out of knit fabric. If you have that kind of sweater, all you get from unravelling it is thousands of tiny annoying strands. !!! Make sure it has proper seams and selvedge edges. :-) Thrift stores are perfect in that respect…

    The sweater is georgous! I reaaly like the lighter pink accent drawstring to go with the off-the-shoulder sleeves.
