Would you believe that this lovely sweater used to be a circa 1995, giant, oversized ribbed sweater from the Banana Republic?! During my February fix-it marathon, I decided to recycle the wonderfully soft cashmere and cotton yarn from that sweater and turn it into the Hourglass sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. It was an easy, quick knit (check the pattern errata before starting the pattern) and so fun finding great yarn for free in the closet!
