Recycled Cowl Neck Sweater

I felted a wool cowl neck sweater and recycled it into a cute shrug with diagonal opening, exaggerated collar and vintage button closure.

Here it is before and after. The color is truest in the after picture. It's available now in my etsy store
The dramatic oversized collar can be styled in several ways. Rouching / ruching at cuffs to add flirty shape to sleeves. I love giving new life to fabric items. Click on the above link to see more pictures.
