I found this lovely Christmas Red Sweater the other day at the thrift store. It's hand knitted with a lovely mohair type fiber. I also found the rabbit trim around the neck of a sweater and purchased it as well. As soon as everything came home I threw it all in the washer.
I turned the sweater inside out and cut off one of the arms at the proper length for a hat. I sewed the top and then zigzagged on top and turned it inside out. I sewed some of the rabbit trim into a circle and sewed it on the folded up rim of the hat. Isn't it adorable?
I've also done it with a few other sweaters hat and it is so much fun!
