Upcycled Sweaters Mittens Tutorial & PDF Pattern – 12 Makes of Christmas 2021

Today’s video is very special to me. This Christmas, I am taking my late grandma’s sweaters and turning them into mittens for the women in my family to enjoy and remember her by. I believe it will be a very thoughtful and heartfelt gift as we celebrate our first Christmas without her.

This project was one of our first tutorials and patterns and I remade the video for this year’s 12 Makes of Christmas. The project makes a great gift and you don’t have to use a special sweater. You can raid your closet or Goodwill for something that will work and have an inexpensive gift you can make in an afternoon.

I used to make these to sell at craft fairs and would be able to make one pair in an hour for about $5. The uglier the sweater, the cuter the mitten, you just need to make sure you choose a pair that has a ribbed sleeve because we’ll use that as a mitten cuff.

You also can use any fiber content, it doesn’t have to be wool, acrylic will work just fine. The pattern is a PDF on our website, so you can get it, and start cutting up those sweaters right away to get your DIY holiday crafting done long before Christmas Eve.
