Showcase your favorite stitches with this DIY sweater art tutorial from Lucinda at Sew Wrong!

All knitter’s have one: that sweater that you tried so hard to “make it work,” but all that ever resulted from it were tears, frustration, and wasted yarn. I’ll admit I have a couple of those hidden in knitting bags in the back of my closet, destined to never to see the light of day again. But as I was settling into my new digs and decorating my craft room (aka my bedroom that also houses my sewing machine and yarn stash), I came across some unused picture frames and thought up a way to bring those unwanted, failed projects back to life: knitted art!

Ever wonder what to do with those pretty swatches, knitting fails, and beautiful sweaters that are beyond mending? I think you’ve just found the answer!
