My first crochet sweaters was a cardigan sweater.  It wasn't perfect but it was a learning experience and fortunately I was crocheting it for myself as an experiment. 

One of the things about sweaters is making them the right size to fit the person you are giving it to.  This means using the right yarn, crochet hook and pattern.  

Whether you decide to take an online class, watch a YouTube video, or purchase step-by-step instructions make sure to find the right pattern to crochet. The perfect pattern is one that you will go back to again and again to crochet in different colors and sizes.

Steps for Crocheting a Sweater

  1. Start  by finding the right crochet pattern you’d like to make + the yarn for to crochet it with
  2. Read every part of the crochet pattern carefully even before you start.
  3. Make a test square to help decide on size
  4. Follow the instructions step by step & don’t be frustrated if you have to tear it out and start over.
  5. Assemble all the pieces of your sweater. Take your time while doing this step.
Sweaters are not just for cold weather. You can find crochet sweater patterns for any season.  Check out these fun finds in crochet sweater patterns!

How to Make a Pair of Knitted Bernie Mittens

You can find lots of free Bernie Mittens Patterns available online by just doing a search for them.
The original mittens are made from repurposed wool sweaters and lined with fleece made from recycled plastic bottles.

We have discovered a great free pattern to knit the Bernie's iconic mittens.

Yarn Suggested for Making the Mittens

The mittens are knitted using 3 different colors of yarn.

Basic Stitch Anti Pilling™ Yarn

Since the fiber is treated to resist pilling it makes the perfect yarn for mittens. Especially for projects that see a lot of wear like mittens, scarves and hats.  Even before it is spun into a premium 4-ply acrylic, the fiber is treated to resist pilling. And, when pills do form (due to frequent use and washing), no need to pick them off - just throw the item in the washer and the pills disappear.
