I found this sweater and loved the color, even tho it had a turtle neck collar....I bought it anyways....after several washings it became uncomfortable to wear so it got tucked in toward the back of my dresser drawer. The other day I pulled it out,,,thinking I would put it in the donation basket....I looked closely at the collar and saw that it was not knitted on but rather stitched on, so a little 'lite bulb' went off in my head...out came the seam ripper, off came the collar & then I zig-zag stitched around the now collarless edge...then I did what any re-purposer would do, I crocheted a new low-rolled collar. I even did a little stitch work around the pocket.
The best part is the yarn was left over from a long ago project.
So guess what I will be wearing tomorrow!
