View Full Version : Patches

Has anyone ever sewn patches onto their knitting projects? I found this adorable Beatles cartoon patch that matches the buttons I bought for my grandson's cardigan. I just wondered if the sweater could hold up sewing a patch onto it. The patch is 4' x 4" and the sweater is knit on size 10 needles and is a chunky worsted weight yarn. What do you think?

I've never done it but I don't see any reason not to try!

I would suggest trying to sew it on a swatch to see if it works out. It'll be easier to throw out a messed up swatch then a messed up sweater.

Thanks, Dream Weaver, that's a great suggestion!
