DIY Open Knit Sweater with T-Shirt Yarn


After seeing a new Richard Nicoll sweater, Donatella of inspiration & realization set out to make her own version of the open knit garment using yarn made from T-shirts.

This sweater has no seams to avoid un-necessary bulkiness on the sides.
It’s all knitted in the round: front and back from the bottom-up; and the sleeves are top-down.

It’s great to see such a fashionable DIY garment tutorial that you can make from your old or upcycled clothes!
