Cardigan Re-fashion

As I mentioned, I had some left-over crocheted chain from yesterday's project. So I did a really quick refashion of a plain black cardigan.

I hand-stitched the yarn chain along the button placket and neckline. Then I added 2 pockets made from felted wool. I think it looks a little better in person - you can't really see the texture of the trim in the photo - my 5 year old photographer was having trouble getting a good pic!!

The sweater was also doing this:

Sweaters that do this drive me crazy!!! I don't know why, but I can't stand it when the hem rolls like that. Luckily, there's a really easy fix. Simply run a wide zig-zag stitch along the existing seam line.

nice flat hem - no more rolling
