It’s here, it’s here! As promised, the Sweater Mitten Tutorial is ALL YOURS, with plenty of time to whip out a dozen pairs for the Holidays.
These are patterns I’ve used dozens of times, so many times that I’d rather not make them in bulk ever again. The patterns were given to me by a kind and generous woman in Northern Wisconsin who whips out dozens of them each year, both for her family and to sell. It was in this spirit of generosity and crafting for the greater good that I’ve decided to in turn, share the patterns with you. Through my own use, I’ve made my own modifications, omitting the turned cuff that you may have seen as part of many sweater mittens, and modifying the fit slightly. But more than that, I’ve consolidated the hundreds of hours of know-how I’ve logged making these myself, and distilled it into a four page tutorial complete with pictures and diagrams. While I’ve pored over the details for many hours, trying to be concise and as clear as possible, I don’t doubt that some polishing can be done. Please do share your feedback, good and constructive. To facilitate this, I’ve created a Flickr group to both showcase and discuss the patterns and our magnificent results. Go see for yourself and share your own results!
To print: You’ll need to print all 5 pdf docs. When printing the actual patterns (front, back – top, back-bottom) BE SURE TO PRINT at 100% or the scale will be off.
All right. Now get sewing!
