Anyone know how to distress a jumper?
I've been seeing quite a few laddered jumpers in shops like these:
Ive got a couple of old jumpers hanging around so really would like to try making one myself.
Just wondering if anyone has seen any tutorials on how to go about it?
I think this is what you are looking for.
i think they are knitted like that. the book "punk knits" have a tutorial on how to do it
Here is a great video on how to shread your sweater like that. Only thing I suggest- is you hand wash and flat dry when you're done with it.
Thanks a million! Ill try these out at the weekend
They're knitted that way, and usually unless you're super careful just ripping them causes the ladders to just keep going and a lot of the stitches undo. Its really easy to do on a knitting machine if you had time/access to one but other than that I don't know, sorry.
We'd love to know what you think - Leave your reply right away
