How to make a trendy braided sweater
I know it's almost Summer and revamping a wool sweater might be a wrong choice for a Mai post. But here in Europe we still have early Spring temperatures. And even the sun comes out sometime it's really chilly outside. This cozy sweater is perfect for outdoor dining, beach walking or open air movie. It is really easy to make but it takes some time to come up with a great pattern and to attach the braids to the sweater.

Tip1: watch your favorite show while you'r handcrafting

Tip2: you can upcycle an old sweater by covering the stains or holes with braids
