I would like to make one to wear at night when it is really cold.
Then I remembered an old stretchy shirt and I thought maybe I could use them together?
I cut the top off the white shirt and put the shirt wrong side to right side of the sweater.
It took me a while to figure that out.
Sewing first, then cutting made the job go much quicker.
I think I'll try wearing it to bed and see if it really keeps my feet warm.
That's what it's supposed to do.
Haramaki are supposed to work by keeping the body core warm and thereby the blood supply. Makes sense... instead of trying to warm my feet where the blood is already cold.
I want a couple of the slimmer type fashion Haramaki to wear during the day. This bulky one I made is great for sleeping, but it adds 30 pounds to my tummy. Not a good look.
Note: I'm going to get a couple of t-shirts that will fit tight, cut off the tops at the arms, and sew them together. That might make a daytime Haramaki. I'll post a photo. Have to get the t-shirts first.
