Reverse Engineer Knitwear – In this series of tutorials and articles, we are going to explore how to deconstruct and reverse engineer knitwear – any item of knitwear.

I’ve always been of the opinion that I want the inside of my sweaters to be as neat and tidy as the side everyone sees. In fact, some sweaters are specifically designed to be worn “inside out” so why not also make them pretty on the inside?
