Introducing the Atlas Tuque Pattern
Last year we released the Atlas mitten pattern and have had lots of requests to make a winter hat pattern to go with it, so I'm happy to announce that our latest accessory pattern - The Atlas Tuque - is here.
What's a Tuque, you ask? You may call it a beanie, winter hat, block heater, but here in Canada, this is what we call it ;)
Just like it's partner mitten pattern, the Atlas Tuque is designed for use with a recycled sweater or lofty cable knit fabric. It features a ribbed band along the opening edge and a pom-pom to top it off. The pom-pom can be made out of recycled fur or faux fur. It has a relaxed, comfortable fit and is simple and quick to sew.
There are two view in the pattern that present different fabrication options.
View 1 uses a recycled sweater and incorporates the ribbing hem band found along the hem edge of the sweater.
View 2 uses cable knit or cardigan knit fabric for the body of the hat and ribbed knit fabric for the band.
If you'd like some tips on shopping for up-cycled materials for this project, check out this video that I made for the Atlas Mittens for some helpful tips on shopping for recycled materials for this project. (This was made for our Atlas Mitten, but the same tips apply to this project)
I've also created a blog post here on how to make a yarn pom-pom to add to the tuque, in case you prefer that to the fur option.

The Sofia pattern bell sleeve is a flowy bias-cut style that's paired with a shoulder strap, making it perfect if you're looking for a style that gives coverage for bra-straps. In this sew-along tutorial, I'll walk you through the steps of constructing this sleeve version.
