A pullover to cardigan tutorial

I like cardigans.  I had bought this grey wool sweater for my husband at a thrift store. He didn’t like the way it felt on.  So I claimed it.

 

This is how I turned it into a cardigan.

If you don’t care about the opening of your sweater being in the center front you can cut the opening wherever you like. I am not the boss of you.

This is the high tech fancy-pantsy way I figured out how to cut the front edging.

I sewed it to the sweater and top stitched the edging into place.

That’s it. It’s not rocket science.

 

Go forth and save a sweater from the sad fate of never being worn.
