DIY: Contrast Cuff Sweater

So I recently chopped the sleeves off my white shirt (tutorial for that coming soon) and I wanted to make something else from the offcuts. With a little inspiration from the contrast fabric trend circulating lately, I created these removable cuffs. You can add them to a knitted top to make a kind of 'hybrid' shirt. It's like an unexpected cross between a formal men's shirt and a cozy, casual sweater. To take this DIY a step further; try adding different buttons or a little embellishment.

STEP 1

Unbutton the cuff and chop it from the sleeve about 1cm away from the stitching.

STEP 2

Fold the extra fabric down and start stitching along the original line of sewing.
