We’re your next best friends on cold bike rides, snowy campfire sessions and romantic lockdown walks. A warm hug for your hands and head. Let’s get sewing.
Good to know
1 cm seam allowance included (sew 1 cm from the edge of the fabric)

01

Determine your mittens size. Place your hand comfortably on the back pattern. Choose the size where you have 3 cm space around your hand. If you're in doubt, choose the larger size.

02

Determine your beanie size. Choose the same size for your head. It's stretchy, so don't worry too much about it.

Stack the pieces together per item: 2 mittens and 1 beanie. Pin them together so you don't get confused later.

16

Pin and sew together. Careful: don't pin and sew the thumb! 


Tip: when you sew, stop just before the thumb, flip it over and start sewing the rest of the piece.

17

Cut half of the seam allowance to avoid bulk when wearing the mittens.

20

Stuff the  whole thing through the hole to get the right sides out. Then put them into each other to create your mitten.

21

Sew the opening by hand so it's closed.

Now for the second mitten. Follow steps 11-20 for the other mitten. Click here to go back to step 11.

VERY IMPORTANT!

For step 19: you have to create the mitten for your other hand. Just use this rule:

You have two pieces with the wrong sides facing outwards. Take the one with the thumb on the opposite side of the finished mitten. Put that right side out and put in the other one.
