25 Pretty Sweater Refashions with Tutorials

refashioned cropped sweater cardigan

I truly love sweaters, especially cardigans.  I also feel like I am buying a new group of them every single year after I’ve blown them out (or just not worn them) from the year before.  This year?  I’m going to my best to spruce up the sweaters that I already have . . . see if I can refashion them into something new and different.  A lot of these tutorials are surprisingly easy and several are inspired by higher-end stores like Anthropologie.  I especially love the pretty color combinations I discovered when searching for tutorials, like this embellished cardigan above.  Can you believe it only took 30 minutes?  I’ve found some additional great ideas I’d like to share; take a peek after the jump!
