I used the front of the sweater for the pants. One sleeve was big enough for the hat. I can make TWO hats out of the sweater with both sleeves. How cool is that?!?!
First, I cut the sleeve into what looks like an upside down funnel.
Now, flip it inside out so the RIGHT side is on the outside. Tie a knot and you're done!
For the tie back, I used a scrap pieces and cut out designs (if that's what you want to call it).
Using a needle and thread, stitch through the inside (opposite of where you just cut).
