I have slowly collected several colors of cashmere sweaters over the years. I have a problem with them, though. Because my house has very little storage room for off-season clothes, the moths sometimes find them and have a snack.
So, in order to keep my sweaters looking nice (not to mention saving the money I spent on them) I've had to learn how to repair those tiny holes in my favorite sweaters.
Here's what you'll need:
- Turn your sweater inside out.
- Find the hole and thread your needle, tying a knot at the end of your thread.
- Start at one end of the hole and go around the perimeter of the hole with your needle.
- Cinch the thread tight enough to bring the hole closed most of the way.
- Taking tiny stitches, sew the edges of the hole closed. You won't want to make big stitches because they're more likely to show on the outside of your sweater.
- Once the hole is completely sewn, tie off the thread by looping your needle back through the stitches you've already made.
- Voila! You're done.
The sweater, when turned right side out, will show what looks like a small blemish (can you see it in the photo?), but no one will notice. See?
