moth hole!!!!!!

knitntinkNovember 3, 2008

I just took a fisherman knit sweater out of the cedar closet and right in the front is a small hole. My late MIL knit it 20 yrs ago and I'm hoping there's a way to fix it. Any suggestions?

If it truly is just one little moth hole, you can use sewing thread that matches the yarn and do a little darning. But there are probably more places that have been eaten than just the one you see, which means the yarn is thin/weak and probably won't last through even one more wash. At least that has been my experience.
