Is there a way to make wool covers or soakers with an old wool sweater?

I thought I read a long time ago how to use an old wool sweater to make cloth dipes...

Anyone know anything about this? (besides pulling the whole thing apart and knitting something new... I don't knit...)

TIA!

I haven't looked at any sites but it just made sense for me to lay a pair of pants/shorts that fit him on top the sweater and cut around them then turn the pieces wrong side facing out and stitch down the sides,fix waist w/elastic or drawstring and since I position to where the cuff on leg ends where the sweater waist is I don't have to worry about hemming up that part.
