Victory Patterns Atlas Mitten
£12.00 – £17.00
Buy the Atlas Mitten sewing pattern from Victory Patterns. These may be the warmest and most stylish mittens you’ll ever wear. Designed for use with mostly upcycled materials, such as recycled knit sweaters, wool and leather goods, there are several fabrication options for you to personalise these mittens to your taste. The mittens are fully lined to keep your ten digits warm all winter, while making sure that when you’re packing snowballs you’ll look good doing it!
View 1: Knit or wool face with leather palm and faux fur cuff.
View 2: Knit or wool face with leather palm and rib knit cuff.
View 3: Common fabric throughout the face and palm of the mitten with either faux fur or ribbing cuff. 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.
Bonus: The Atlas Mitten pattern includes a free embroidery pattern featuring two beautiful folky floral motifs. They go perfectly with the Atlas Mitten, especially if you’re making it with a solid colour wool. If you’re new to embroidery, this is a great starter project.
