Free Mitten Patterns & Glove Patterns
And sewing a pair of mittens can be a great way to recycle an old sweater. Just sew
the fabric as you would any knit fabric, using a stretch stitch or a small zig zag
stitch so that your finished gloves will stretch along the seamlines. And if your
sweater fabric is quite bulky, you may want to lighten the pressure of your sewing
machine's presser foot so that the knit will feed more easily.
And since some of these designs call for working with fleece, here are some tips for
working with fleece fabric:
Fleece has a subtle nap to it, so make sure you lay out your pattern pieces in the
same direction so that the nap will run the same way in your finished mittens. And
because of its bulk, you may find it easier to cut fleece in a single layer rather than
doubling it (just remember to cut "mirror images" of your pattern pieces). Fleece
can also produce a lot of lint. Therefore, when you're finished with your project, be
sure to clean your sewing machine.
