I had this old ugly sweater that I didn't like. I was going to get rid of it, but instead, I made it into a hat!!

I got this idea from an amazing book called AlternaCrafts.  Smiley

it's super easy...just find an old sweater and lay it out flat on the floor. then cut two big pieces (mine were 9 x 11 inches, i believe) for the main part of the hat. then you cut the sleeves into 6 long strips, each strip should be about an inch and a half wide. take three of the strips and sew them together at the top, then braid them and sew them together at the bottom. do the same with the other three strips. then sandwich each braid inside the two bigger pieces with the short ends sticking out of the top, sew the pieces together (including the braids), & turn it right-side out!
hope that helped.  Smiley

p.s. the full instructions are in the book I mentioned above. It's worth reading, there are tons of cool ideas. : )
