Add Thumbholes To A Store-Bought Sweater
Bought a sweater without thumbholes?
Here’s what you need!
Measure and mark your desired thumbhole placement.
1
Rip the seams between the marks where you want to place your thumbhole.
2
Clean out any leftover thread.
3
Fold the raw edges back inside the cuff and pin in place.
4
Hand sew around the thumbhole with a ladder stitch (aka invisible stitch) to close the seam.

At your last stitch, secure with a knot. Hide the thread inside the cuff and snip.
6
Repeat with the second sleeve.
7
Your thumbholes are complete!
Enjoy your updated sweater!
