this guide to redesigning, recycling, and renewing your wool sweaters,
you’ll transform knits that have been felted—intentionally
or otherwise—into fun, colorful, and eco-conscious sweaters,
bags, and accessories.
In Sweater Renewal,
Sharon Franco Rothschild goes green in full color, showing you how to
rescue your old woolen knits and give them renewed life as felted
creations. With little or no knitting experience, you can refashion
blankets, sweaters, scarves, or even hand-knitted pieces into vibrant
clothing, accessories, and home decor. The only requirement is that
they are made of wool.
The 25 colorful, cheerful projects in Sweater Renewal
incorporate a diverse range of skills—including felting,
appliqué, crochet, sewing, and embroidery—and range from
Short, Sweet & Simple Projects using felted sweaters, such as a
cell phone holder and a Fair Isle digital camera case, to Knitted,
Felted & Fantastic Projects that you knit and then felt, such as a
purse and a felted scarf. Most can be finished in less than a day, some
in a few hours..
