Sweater Sleeves into Legs

Remember that cable knit sweater that I turned into a pillow and said I would make a pair of pants from them?  Well, I took those sleeves and turned them into a pair of cable knit pants.  Here’s what I did:

I took a pair of PJ bottoms to use as a template and outlined them plus seam allowance

After roughly tracing them, I cut the sleeves.

With right sides together, I sewed the center crotch and formed a pair of pants

I finished off the waistband with a silky fabric and elastic band inside.

Ta Da! They fit!!
