Red sweater redesign - a small tutorial

A sweater made more than twenty years ago - now with several stains.







I machine stitched and cut.











Zig-zag around the edges.








Picked up stitches for ribbing, around 2 sts every 3 rounds. K2, p2. Short rows for shaping around the neck. Four buttons holes.







Embroidery over the stains - and a bit more.









Fun with colours and stitches!








Stains gone!







Fake leather buttons.








Belt.








Et voilà! A new cardigan!








A fun project!

That's great! I love the embroidery. I always find it so amazing when people can do this with old clothes. I'll have to try it myself one day.
