We’ve all done it, got a jumper that was just a little bit too short. It looked good in the store because you pulled it down and wedged it on your hips then didn’t move while you surveyed it. Then, the first time you wore it out, the bugger pops up over your hips and shows your crack.
If you’re lucky enough to have wasted your money on a knit jumper, and if you know how to crochet, you may be able to rescue your poor choice with a couple of hours of quality couch time.
You might find it hard to match the exact colour of the wool like we did, so we decided to go for a different colour in the same tone and hem in a colour that almost matched the jumper.
Chain up and put a double crochet into that stitch, then two doubles into the next stitch on either side of the seam. Do the same when you reach the next seam. We just want to give a little extra room for the hips.
