Have you shrunken your sweater?
If you have somehow shrunken your sweater, you may be able to restore it back to its original size and shape. Place the garment in a sink filled with lukewarm water. Pour in a ½ cup of hair conditioner (any brand will do). Let the sweater soak for 10 minutes. Fish it out and lay it flat on a towel to dry. As you shape it on the towel, give the sweater a few tugs all the way around.
Why it works: The oils that hair conditioner contains soften the sweater´s knit fibers which help them to stretch back to its original shape.
