hand crochet? For that chunky bedspread...
Step 1: Wash and dry your sweater. I picked up two from a thrift store in the same color but different thicknesses and textures. Turn the sweater inside out. Step 2: Place your pillow form onto your sweater lining up one edge of the form with a side of the sweater if possible. This makes 1 less seam for your to sew! Step 3: Measure around the pillow leaving a margin to sew. Mark and cut the sweater. Sew the two pieces together leaving a space to slip the pillow form in. Cut away the excess sweater (save for other projects!) and turn right side out. Step 4: Slip the pillow form in and hand stitch the opening closed. Embellish if desired.

Instructions for every stitch imaginable!
When wool is washed and dried, it is transformed: The fibers pull together to produce the soft, thick fabric we call felt. This is unintentional, of course. But you can shrink a sweater on purpose -- one that's old, with holes or stains, perhaps -- turning it into a medium that's wonderful for crafting.
