I bought a few wool sweaters at good will, I 'd like to chop them to make pants and a few soakers for DS, does anyone have a pattern or advise?

Someone posted this great tutorial over at diaperswappers and i've made my son 4 pairs of longies using this pattern.  it is SO easy.  You'll never buy new again after realizing how easy it is to make such cute pants from thrifted sweaters. :)  I bookmarked the tutorial and just pop it open every time I want to make a pair...which reminds me I need to felt that cashmere sweater I found at thrift town the other day... :)
