I tried unraveling a sweater once. It was disastrous.
The secret is unraveling the chain stitch that holds the pieces together. I finally figured it out and with a little pulling it just comes apart in seconds. I think it helps if you have done some sewing.
What a great idea. I just gave away a lot of sweaters.

I love unraveling sweaters for the yarn also (love the thrift stores). But the grey one and cream are just too awesome to unravel. The pink one, yes, I'd unravel that one. Great buy!
Agree - the cream one is an absolute gem. Do use it as it is - and with love!

Wish I could, unfortunately it's a size extra small measures 31 across the bust.
Well the beige/camel sweater yielded 11 ounces of merino, angora, cashmere blend yarn, ; the grey acrylic boucle weighed in at 17 oz., and the red acrylic/wool at 20 oz. have no idea what I'm going to make with any of them but that should keep me busy for a while. Each yarn 12-13 wraps per inch, dk weight.
