So.... find all the holes. Very simple, of course.

I bought a package of butterfly iron on patches and covered each hole with a patch. I thought it was appropriate and funny to cover moth holes with butterfly patches. All you have to do is follow the directions on the pack. 

Step 3: Wear the repaired sweater

Here's the finished sweater, with six patches altogether. Three are on the front and three are on the back. I really like the colors of the butterflies on the gray sweater.
