Slice the sleeves off of your sweater, and pull them on as you would a leg warmer. Add boots.
If you’re concerned about fraying, you can do one of two things. If the material is synthetic, hold a lighter under the cut edge. The yarn should start to melt and glue itself together. If you’re using a natural fiber sweater, paint the cut edges with clear nail polish to keep them from unraveling.
