    Here is a choice. All of them would work, I think. Chose which one you like best

    His grandmother had made him a sweater to help him protect himself from the cold weather.

    His Grandmother had made him a sweater so he could pretect himself from the cold weather.

    His grandmother had made a sweater for him to protect himself ...

    HIs grandmother had made him a sweater as a preotection against the cold weather.

    (though I'd prefer one of the first three myself)

    Or how about:

    His grandmother [had] made him a sweater to keep him warm in the cold weather.
