How-To: Turn a Sweater into a Hat


Now that the cold weather is upon us, it’s time to bundle up, and that includes your noggin! This tutorial from A Beautiful Mess takes an old ill fitting sweater and upcycles it into something you would actually wear again! The addition of the pom-pom in a contrasting color really completes the look. I love these bold hues which would be a cheery splash of color on a dreary winter day.



Think you have some old sweaters taking up space in your closet? Grab your sewing machine and give it a go. If you have enough left overs, try making a set of mittens to match!
