I love wearing cardigans. So I was sad when I managed to stain my cream colored cardigan. The stain was near the top button on one side. Thankfully, before tossing the cardigan (because I couldn’t manage to get the stain out), I thought of a way to revive it.
Using the same pattern as the flowers in my shop I made a set of 8 crochet flowers. Two of them are the normal size I use for headbands, and the other 6 are smaller (I used a thinner yarn). I stitched the two larger ones nearest to the shoulder on each side. Then, following the edge of the cardigan, I added three more to each side.
I really love how it turned out!
Way to save your cardigan! It’s cute. I need to do this with my cardigans 🙂

That’s really cute, Julie. I’ve been wanting to up-cycle some old sweaters as well.
Thank you, Carla! Now that I’ve up-cycled this cardigan, I have some others in mind too.
I love it!
