Please note that all projects made using my ideas are strictly for personal use- Don't make money off me unless you plan on cutting me a portion of the profits! ;)
Set the rest of the sock aside. We'll use it later in another tutorial to make a skirt and a dress! :)
I just used a straight stitch- it may not necessarily be the best method- I'm not a pro! If you prefer to use a different stitch- perhaps a zigzag, be my guest.
Cut 2" off the sleeves.
Starting at the edge of one sleeve sew towards the armpit. Try to sew as close to the edge as you can, since we don't have any material to spare on this one.
Pivot at the armpit and continue down the side of the bodice.
Be aware that the hemmed edge is pretty thick and you may have a doozy of a time pushing your project through. Just breathe and you'll get it ;).
Repeat with the other side starting again at its sleeve.
Your sweater should look something like this.
Turn the sweater right side out again. I had help with the sleeves using one of my crochet hooks ;).
It's easiest to slide the sweater on going up the legs.
If she could talk, I'm sure she would thank you and applaud you for such a well-done job. ;)
Enjoy your work and pat yourself on the back. Show it off to your family and friends, being sure to tell them where/how you learned to do it. ;)
Next time we'll use the remainder of the sock making a simple skirt and a cute dress.
