Okay, I forgot to take a photo of the before. But this was a big bulky sweater with a HUGE turtleneck. I was able to cut it down and make the neck more like a mock-turtleneck. It ended up being pretty short (it'd been badly shrunken), but it will still make for a great long sweater over a pair of itty-bitty skinny jeans!
Then I crocheted a rose for the shoulder. Adorable!
For the record, Thing 1 will be a great model one day. He is not picky about what I put on him!
Update: Here is a picture of the actual little lady the sweater was made for with her wearing it! Doesn't she look darling.
