Isn't this a cute wrap sweater? I made it from an oversized sweater following along Betz White's fabulous online class at Craftsy.com.
The tutorial was clear and easy to follow. I'm not much of a sewer but I even managed to do the cute lettuce-edged sleeves...didn't they turn out great? There wasn't very much sewing involved and it all came together rather quickly.
I had planned to use a cozily shrunken cashmere sweater but there were two problems...one is that a moth got there first and the second is that it was too small to really work. This sweater was a wool/silk blend turtleneck style. You can transform any sweater but I think cashmere would be especially snuggly.
