Hi! We have a quick, easy, and super fun pattern hack for you today. This version of Make It Mine is courtesy of Kya Kuehn. She runs a fabulous little boutique called Trendy Tendency and she loves all things fringe! When she was testing the Rosemary Crop Sweater, she made it her’s by making the sweater from Fleece, rather than the suggested Knit, and she added fringe to her cowl!!! Today we are going to show you how to replicate this look for yourself.
The first thing you need to know is that you will only be making the shell for this version. Therefore you will only need 1 Front & Back Bodice, 2 Sleeves, and 2 Cowl pieces.Once you have all your pieces cut out you will assemble the sweater as indicated in the pattern up through attaching the cowl.
Before you attach the cowl you will need to create your fringe. To do this you simply need to decide on the length of your fringe. I would suggest that you leave 3-4 inches uncut off the base of the cowl (the portion that will attach to the neckline of the sweater), and you will need to leave 1/2″ off each side. Then you will simply cut the fleece into little strips, or fringe, down the length of the cowl. Repeat this process for the second cowl piece.
You will then attach your two cowl pieces along the side seams, and continue to follow the instructions in the tutorial to attach the cowl to the neckline of the sweater. One of my favorite parts of Kya’s hack is that there are not even any seams to finish. This is such a fast, fun, and completely stylish take to the Rosemary Crop Sweater.
