This time last year we had record heat. I was sunbathing in the garden and sipping iced tea. But this year it’s cold, oh so chilly!!! It’s jeans and woollies all the way. I’m lucky to be off to some sun in a few weeks and although day time will be T-shirt heat I wanted something to pull over in the evenings. I was inspired by this post by A Pair & A Spare.
DIY Fringed Festival Jumper
This jumper was quite long and I wanted a slightly shorter front, so I unhooked the stitching at the side seems on the jumper. Most knitted jumpers will have this.
I opened it up about 5″ each side. Turn the jumper inside out then folded the front section over.
Match the side seems together and stitched up the sides, about 3″ each side.
Then stitch across the top, about an inch above the new hem, cut off the excess about an inch above the stitching.
