Alterations needed on a knit sweater
I have a beautiful red mohair knit sweater with a cowl neck that is tunic style but way too long for style and my petite size. I would like to “save it’s life” and shorten it to long hip length. It can be left boxy at the bottom and I think would look great with jeans. My questions have to do with: how do I go about unraveling, top stitching, edge finishing. I can knit & crochet, and I do some sewing on a machine with stretch stitch capabilites. The sweater is loose and ribbed along the bottom. HELP. Looking for tried and true suggestions.
