Knit Fix

Welcome everyone from Design*Sponge! We're thrilled silly you're stopping by!

Here's a short one for the weekend - and hopefully helpful, too!

I bought a great elbow pad sweater from Zara the other day, but for some reason, I bought one with numerous pulls in it. There are two solutions for this. First, look hard (or just look at them, I feel like a dummy) at the pieces you buy before you buy them. Second, if you're not a crocheter invest in a small crochet hook. The one I used is size US 11. Poke it from the inside of the sweater to the outside, catch the loop and pull it back to the inside. Done! Whatever you do, don't cut it.

Where did it go?

  1. It's amazing how easy it is to fix - thanks for the tip (and for including the size of the hook you use).

    p.s. visiting from design*sponge - your leaded glass project was inspired. I've been lugging around a huge leaded glass window since college, it was my first auction purchase and I refuse to part with it. Thus far, it's only inspired tetanus shots, but now I know exactly what I'm going to do w/it. My husband will be eternally grateful. Thanks!
