Cutout Turtleneck Sweater Do It Yourself Style

Most of you have seen those cut out turtleneck sweaters. They are really cute, and really popular right now. For those of you who are wondering what they look like here's a picture of one.
I watched The Sorry Girls do a do it yourself version of this, and well it did look pretty easy. So since I recently purchased a turtleneck on at thrift store trip, I decided to see if this was as easy as it looked in their video.

Here's what the turtleneck started out like.
The first thing you want to do is put your sweater on. You want to see just where you want the cutout needs to be. Either mark it with chalk or pins.


I a measuring tape and laid it across the area I wanted to cut out to give me a way of keeping it something even. I then placed pins down in a v shape.

Then grab your scissors and cut along the inside of the pins. Take the pins and using a piece of yarn sew the item under about a quarter inch. 

It will end up something like this.

In the end this really was as easy as it sounds. And it didn't really take that much time to complete. And the price tag was much cheaper that what you could get in the store. 

So if you are a fan of do it yourself projects try this one.
