I got so much use out of this teal-blue sweater! In addition to the leg warmers, rose choker, and yarn rose infinity scarf I was able to make from this one sweater, I also made another infinity scarf (from the torso of the sweater) with a feather rose.
I had to keep warning the cats away while I stitched on this long piece of feather trim. It was dangling while I worked with it, and the cats were mighty tempted by it. Stitching it on was a bit of a trick. I first stitched on the blue rose (made from a scrap), then wrapped the bright white feather trim around the rose a few times, whip-stitching as I went. After doing so, I ran my fingers along the feather trim a few times to loosen the individual feather strands from the whip-stitches, so that nobody would be able to tell where the stitches were.
It’s quite warm and cozy! I’m going to sell it; I can’t keep it since I already kept the other one I made. I’m running out of room for all my scarves!
