This thrifted sweater is made of lovely stuff - 70% mohair, 30% nylon. It's a beautiful colour. But it's gigantic on me, albeit labelled as a medium.
And the details of it are hideous. (As is this picture of me. Yikes!)
The body is reverse stockinette stitch, which I do not care for. (The smooth jersey face is hidden and the purl bumps are on the outside.)
The collar, cuffs and lower edge each end in a length of (right-side out) stockinette stitch, which forms a curl, and then a short length of ribbing to cinch the garment in. Yick.
I considered trying to unravel the sweater but in order to ensure that this turns into something wearable in my lifetime, I have pretty much decided to take it apart and treat it as fabric.
Any other ideas?
