Happy New Year! We're happy to see you back here and hope you had an amazing holiday! We're starting off 2020 with our new favorite way to take a piece of clothing up a notch. That's right...with yarn! Yarn is perfect for embellishing chunky knit sweaters to add that little bit of flair we all know and love. So grab a sweater you already own or one that could use a little TLC, and check it out!

Here's how...
1. Thread yarn through the yarn needle. Tie a double knot at the end of the yarn.
2. Following the knit of the sweater (to keep a straight line) do a simple stitch all the way down the sleeve. Secure with another double knot.
3. Repeat until you've gone all the way around each sleeve.

There you have it! It's really easy to make and ends up looking like a super unique piece that is all your own (and that didn't cost a fortune!).
