I have three sweaters, 2 wool, one cotton - commerical made. I haven’t worn them in years and the the cotton one is pulled out of shape it doesn’t look good anymore the wool sweaters are from the late 80’s early 90’s and are oversized.
I’ve been thinking about taking them apart and using the wool and cotton to knit something else. The wool is good quality as is the cotton and I hate to get rid of them considering how much yarn can cost.
Has anyone taken apart old sweaters and re-made them into something new? Any advice or tips for doing this? Or would it serve me better to just donate the sweaters? I’ve never done this before and don’t know what I would be getting myself into.
