My latest knitterly Makeover of a Summer Sweater
No matter if you call it a sweater, jumper or pullover, sometimes it is time to change the style or fit.
Read to the end of this post for my offer to help you with your sweater.
This Spring I tackled my Lalo Simple Sweater which I had knitted five years ago in a beautiful linen yarn. I like the sweater EXCEPT for the neckline. I always thought it was a tad too big and even added strings to tie the neckband tighter....

|The new look|
I think I like it!
Here are some other tops and sweaters I had given a make over in the past:
Too wide and too short
...redone from the armholes down
And last, but not least:
VERY wide neck
...I re-knitted the neckband on smaller needles.
...I added 2 1/2 inches of ribbing to the hem.
