Take 6 strands of yarn and cut at 8” long each.
Start at the bottom of your sweater. Take the 6 strands of yarn and push one end through the sweater’s weave.
Bring the yarn through so that both sides of the yarn are equal.
Tie off the pieces of yarn in a knot.
Continue this process around the bottom level of the sweater, about 1/2” distance apart.
Continue all the way around, then add a row about 2” up and continue the same process until the entire vest/sweater is complete.
Watch Paige demonstrate how to make your own DIY shaggy sweater vest in the video below!
Home & Family airs weekdays at 10 am ET/PT on Hallmark Channel.
