Wool Covers from Old Sweaters

I went through my old box of wool sweaters (some merino wool, some lambs wool, and some wool+cashmere blends) and decided to have some fun with Katrina's soaker patterns again.

I googled for some easy applique designs and cut up the scraps to make appliques.  I will do some girly fleece applique designs soon too (none of the sweaters I had were suitable for very girly covers this time.)


  1. So cute!! For the longies, do you essentially make a long cuff (a tube/rectangle)? Or do you shape it in some way (sort of like the shape of a sleeve on a shirt)?

    1. Nah, they're not doubled over like cuffs (unless you're using a VERY thin sweater and want to do that.) They just have a finished edge (like the end of a sleeve or the waist edge of the sweater.

  2. The way you do leg bands - will save me from a lot of annoyance in the future. Lol thanks for sharing!
