Sewing patterns Atlas Mittens - PDF


THE ATLAS MITTEN may be the warmest and most stylish pair of mittens you'll ever wear. Designed for use with mostly upcycled materials, such as recycled knit sweaters, wool, fur, and leather goods. There are several fabrication options for you to personalize these mittens to your taste. The mitten is fully lined and will keep your ten digits warm all winter while making sure that when you're packing snowballs, you'll look good doing it!

BONUS: We've included a free embroidery pattern that features two beautiful folky floral motifs. They go perfectly with the Atlas mitten, especially if you're making it with solid color wool. If you're new to embroidery, this is a great starter project.

View 1: A Knit or wool face with a leather palm; features a fur cuff made from either recycled or faux fur.

View 2: A Knit or wool face with a leather palm; features a rib-knit cuff.

View 3: Common fabric throughout the face and palm of the mitten. The fur and ribbing cuff is interchangeable. For this view, it is suggested to use wool for the outer layer. The recycled knit sweater is not recommended for the palm as it likely has more stretch than is ideal, which will produce a larger mitten size. Alternatively, you can use leather for the entire outer layer of the mitten.


*Certain fabric items, such as lining, insulation, or ribbing, may need to be purchased new.
