Too big sweater to open front drapey cardigan

Morning everyone! I found this lovely drop shoulder too big sweater. I was just drawn by the stripes and the pink. I am such a sucker for pink....

I found this tutorial on Oh Everything Handmade. Which after seeing her clever refashion, I know this is what I wanted to do!! My sweater was a thinner kit so I had to make a few tweaks on the tutorial but I made it work! OMG I love my new open front cardigan! Much better than the original!

Recap!

Cheers,
Lauren
