THE GOLDBERGS: BEVERLY'S FUN SWEATERS THAT'LL BRIGHTEN UP YOUR DAY

Updated: Aug 25, 2023

With the conclusion of its 10th season, The Goldbergs TV series is perfect for a cool and relaxing knitting session. The story is inspired by the real family of its creator, Adam F. Goldberg, who is also the main character in a childhood version of himself.


Set in an alternate version of the 1980s in the Philadelphia suburb of Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, The Goldbergs provides a glimpse into the reality of that decade through the eyes of a preadolescent and, later, a teenager.


However, the true gem of this family is the mother, Beverly, known for her extravagant, dramatic, and creative mind that always delivers great comedy and fashion! Bev is best known for her fun and thematic sweaters. While watching the show, you may wonder, "Is it possible for someone to truly wear something like this?" Well, some of Beverly's most iconic garments are authentic pieces from the author's mother.


The Goldbergs - Beverly's sweaters

Portrayed by Wendi McLendon-Covey, she always exhibits her wardrobe with confidence and pride, expressing humor and individuality. The sky is the limit for her creations! We have a unicorn, cowboy, duck, and Hanukkah sweaters. Every holiday and theme deserves a piece of Bev's creativity. One of the most remarkable pieces is a customized denim jacket created by the real-life Beverly. It features crochet coasters, lace, embroidery, and even a velvet glove with a ring sewn on it.

Alongside her amazing art pieces, the character effortlessly combines her pullovers and cardigans with colorful leggings, pleated skirts, shoulder pads, high-waisted jeans, and voluminous hair—true treasures of 80s fashion. As we walk through the season posters of the show, we are treated to an amazing gallery of sweaters that truly take us on a trip to the past.

Truth be told, we can't question Beverly's taste in shaping. Nothing is cozier than a big, sloppy, oversized 80s sweater that feels like a mother's warm hug. We have compiled some knitting patterns that would undoubtedly earn Bev's approval label!
