These were the holes when I started. They were chewed by my sisters pet mice years ago and I couldn't bring myself to throw such a nice cable sweater away. This...
I cleaned the holes up by crocheting over the frayed parts with similar colored yarn. Then I put some crochet flowers I made out of embroidery thread in the holes, and stitched the petals into the holes.
I also fixed the seam on the cuff...just held the sides together and back-stitched it like new.
