Hi!  I looked at your post - I'm unclear what it is about the sweater you want to change.  It could be me, though, it's late!

You coud cut from the left corner of the turtleneck base down to the right side of the chest and let it all the edges fall naturally.

You could cut the turtleneck in strips and let it fall like a fringe.

You could shorten the neck of the turtleneck and cut an opening in the front to make a Jackie Kennedy-esque collar.

You could cut from armpit to armpit, turn the top over, add ribbon and make a camisole or halter.

Remove the sleeves and leave the turtleneck.

Cut the neck into a v and use velvet bias tape to finish it.

You can just cut the turtleneck collar off and lob the sleeves off.  You can cut the straps to make them thinner, or cut each into three sections, braid, and restitch to the back of the shirt to get thin straps like a cami.  Then just wear the collar with the tank- it'll be like a matching neck cuff and cami.  Strange, but cute!
