I recently found this great old crochet sweater from Espirit in a local thrift store. I knew it was too small for me but I just had to buy it. Today I’m wearing it as a stylish neckpiece to add pizzazz to a basic blue dress.

Here’s how I did it:

Fold the neckline over, from back towards front

Place the crochet sweater across your body, arms towards your back.

Bring the arms to the front and tie them in a knit. Pull it tight enough that you like the final shape of the new neckpiece.

quite an interesting way to wear a sweater. I think it would be a lovely skirt. Just have to figure out how to add it a skirt without damaging the design. The color and the design are awesome.
