Cozy Cotton Sweater Throw

Some of these old sweaters have really interesting textures
One had a loop on the back.

I think I got this idea from a woman who was making throws out of old wool sweaters. In searching all the thrift stores I didn't find many interesting wool sweaters, but I did find some great cotton ones. I started out cutting them in small squares and soon realized that would take forever (and make a real mess), so I just used the small ones around the perimeter.
