Introducing the Atlas Tuque Pattern

November 26, 2020

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.

 

Check out the Atlas Tuque in the shop and get 30% off in our Black Friday sale

 

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!!!)

Up until recently, I had never made a pom-pom in my life. I consider myself a super crafty person, and since these little guys are sort of like craft 101, I figured it was high time I get on it. I'm happy to say, they're really easy, fun and quick to make. Now that I feel like I've mastered this little craft, I wanted to share this tutorial with you, which comes just in time for the release of our latest pattern the Atlas Tuque.
