I knit this Calvin Rib Turtleneck from Valley Yarns about two years ago. I’ve never worn it because I was really unhappy with how it fit where the neck met the body (other people had the same complaint). It’s been sitting in a knitting bag so today I decided to rip out the neck & try turning it into a cowl instead. It’s a little tricky because the sweater was knit top down so I was ripping from the cast on not the bind off.
Finished Calvin Turtleneck
The sweater as it was.

I’m also going to have to add more to the length, even though I added 3-inches its still too short!

Handmade 365 2010- My goal is to spend time everyday working on something handmade for a year & photograph it.

    • Oh man, I'm having to do the same sort of thing to a problem sweater I've been working on for my dad for the last 2 months. Sleeves were waaaay too long, so I'm having to shorten them from the cuff up, and the torso was too short, so I had to add on another 4 inches or so. Never using THAT pattern again.
