Turn a Cardigan Into a High Neck Sweater With a Shoe Lace!

2 Materials
1 Hour

I've said it before but sometimes cardigans make me look boxy, probably because I'm so short. Which is why I turned this silver grey cardigan into a backward sweater!

Exihbit A: the original, nothing special but I liked the material and the color, it was a very thin sweater.

Exhibit B: the shoelace, I stole it from these boots.

I used the shoelace to weave through the cardigan it had some holes already in it so I didn't have to puncture any. The material was pretty pours so I was able to weave it through without creating any new holes just widening the material to fit the shoelace string.

I think it came out so cute.

I suppose you could wear this as the front as well but I actually turned it around. I've mentioned before that I like wearing things backwards sometimes I think it creates a totally different look in the neckline.

Tada, a silver sweater for any occasion out on the town or dinner at home.
