Introducing the Atlas Tuque Pattern

November 26, 2020 1 Comment

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.

And if you'd like to make the mittens as well and haven't snatched that pattern up just yet, I've also created a pattern bundle with both the mitten and tuque pattern for 10% off the regular price (that's an extra 10% the Black Friday sale price!!!)

A centered zipper is one of the most usefull zippers to be able to sew. They are commonly used in skirts, dresses, and pants, as well as cushion covers and handbags. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to sew a centered zipper using directional sewing, which avoids the fabric from shifting in different directions once the zipper is sewn in.
