I see red! Refashion project no. 1
3 June 2007
Found this red sleeveless poloneck at Glebe Markets for $5. I didn’t like the poloneck (hate things touching my throat), but loved the warm red colour, the length, the pocket, and that it was obviously hand-knitted.
So I unravelled the poloneck down to 4 rows of stitching, popped them on some circular needles, knit one row and cast them off again. The first time I had too-small needles, and couldn’t get it over my head; so I had to unravel and start again.
After a quick once-over with a razor to remove the pilling, I have a sleeveless vest – perfect to wear to work over button-up shirts or over t-shirts on the weekend.
