These are spectacular! They look cuter (and comfier) than the inspiration stools.

I love these! Great Job! I wear sweaters to work in the winter but they only ever last 3 or 4 months before they're stretched out or shrunk up or just not wearable anymore. I always hate throwing them away. This is  a great alternative! I might have to seek out some stools on my next round of thrift store shopping!

Love this idea!  I've thought about knitting seat/cushion covers b/c I love the look but haven't gotten around to it.  I love the idea of buying a thrifted sweater, much quicker!!

Oh, cool! I buy second-hand sweaters to unravel for the yarn, but I haven't tried re-using them like this.
