I found this sweater at a local thrift store a while ago; I really love the color of the yarn and the pattern. I decided to make a tube scarf out of this sweater.
Begin by making bias tape with fabric that complements the sweater. You can use store-bought bias tape too.
Place the bias tape a few inches below the arm pit. Pin the bias tape all around the body.
Join the ends of the bias tape. Sew all around the body with a sewing machine.
Cut above the edge of the bias tape.
Fold the bias tape towards the wrong side of the sweater. Pin the bias tape in place then sew with a zigzag stitch all around the body.
All you need to do now is to enjoy!
