    I have a number of sweaters headed for a yard sale tomorrow so I guess I had better start snipping instead… I just love these! Now to find some boots that won’t kill the bank and aren’t too tight in the calves. :)

    Another super easy way is to just cut them off and use the wrist part as the top.

    And ummmmmm…..patiently (not really) awaiting part 7 :)

    This is SO super cute!! I want to fund some sweaters from goodwill to do this now!
    I just have one question… How does the knit not come undone when you cut it away from the seam?

      The fabric on my sweaters didn’t unravel at all, it kinda just rolled over and I sewed the trim over the edge to cover it. The first sweater was made out of something that probably would unravel more easily, but once the trim was sewn on it, it was fine. I haven’t tried to wash them yet… I will probably hand wash them anyway :) Let me know if you try it!!

    This is a fabulous idea! I knit and was planning to make these for my daughter (13) and me to share! I may just skip it now and head to GoodWill! You never cease to amaze us!!!

    Super cute! Did you make the skirt (layered, color-blocked one) with the non-boot cuffed shot? That looks SO adorable, too!

      Michelle, I didn’t make the skirt, but I am totally going to try to make one now! My friend who was taking pictures of me in the socks had that cute wrap skirt and I just threw it on for the picture!

    Ok, I love these! I don’t have any boots, though- hmm, good excuse to buy some. Gots to have some to go with my handmade boot socks… :)

    This is so great, Becky! I have been stalking these on Etsy myself and wondered if sweater sleeves would work. And, you’ve taken my wondering to reality. : ) Love these and I’m definitely going to try it myself! Thanks for the tutorial and for modeling how they look when they are completed.

    With the rest of the sweaters after the socks are made you can also make cushions for your bed or furniture.

      Yadyra, So true! I made a bunch of sweater pillows a few months back for a friend :)

    How do the socks not fall down? Is there elastic in the top band? I want to make some as leg Warner’s but am curious if they would just slouch down eventually?

    Adorable socks! What a great way to recycle old sweaters. They will make perfect Christmas gifts for my sisters.
