If you’re anything like me, then you have a pile of old sweaters taking up space in your closet — yet I can’t bring myself to throw them out. As the weather starts to get cooler, this simple, creative project brings new life to old sweaters in the most wonderful way… and it’s so easy!
Rather than spending money on cute beanies, make one out of an old sweater instead. In the video below, YouTube style guru AndreasChoice teaches you how to make a quick DIY beanie with no sewing required. Start by cutting into the sweater right under the armpit, all the way across. Then cut down the seam of one side. Wrap the sweater around your head to see how big the hat should be, then cut off the excess fabric. Watch the tutorial below to see the next few steps, and trust me, if I can make a beanie like this then you can, too!
The great thing about this project is the fact it’s so quick that you can sit down and make a bunch of beanies in all different colors and patterns in no time.
