Hello Readers. I wanted to show you this simple fix for a turtleneck poncho. One of my wonderful sisters-in-law passed this poncho down to me. (Thanks J!) It is warm and cozy but the neck made me feel like this. I don't like turtlenecks of any kind. It's like they want to strangle me. But I loved this sweater and it's (STILL!) cold out there.
I decided to try to make the turtleneck into a big collar. I wasn't sure it would work. If it didn't I was going to remove the whole thing. I found the middle in the front and used the knit lines as a guide. Would it fray and become a terrible mess? No, it actually looked great.
It had a seam around the neck hole and I didn't cut through that. It helps the poncho hold its shape. If I cut through it it would stretch out and slide off my shoulders. It looks a bit lopsided in the photo, I moved my arms back and shifted the poncho around. It is even and still nice and warm.
Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself.
