Green Cardi

I have a new green cardi

.

Which started as a blue small man’s wool jumper from Sportscraft. It was on sale for $15 because it had a hole near the welt. I darned the hole and wore the jumper a few times but didn’t really like it. The proportions were wrong (surprise) and anyway, I have a few blue jumpers now.

So I dyed it green

.

Then I cut it into the shape I wanted (which happily removed the darned hole) and faced all the cut edges with fine wool jersey.

Then I plaited some green string, made loop fastenings and sewed on some nice shell buttons. Voila.
