Hi Everyone! Are you ready to tackle another fun project using socks? This one works great with socks that have a print design that can be worn in any direction - things like stars, stripes, dots, etc. For this tutorial I'm using the top of the sock ribbing as the waistline of the sweater, so the sock will be flipped upside down to create the cropped cardigan look. We're using the Liberty Jane Cropped Sweater pattern, but flipping it around so it opens at center front. There are two options for the center front opening, use basic binding or go one step further with a separating zipper. The end result is fantastic and super adorable!
Are you ready to jump in and tackle this project? Let's go...
In the videos posted below, I walk you through the process of making this super cute cropped cardigan. I've covered both the binding and the zipper front opening. You can use them interchangeably.
