How toTips & Tricks For Sweater Mitten Cuffs
12 steps
Hello!
What to do about a misshapen cuff? This could result in an unwanted wide or flared opening.
1
First take a good iron to it, so you can at least see it’s potential.

Ok, better. But if I use this as is, I’d have a wide bottom & narrow top. Not a look I’m going for.

I am going to narrow it down and even it up. I adjust measurements to the stretch of the fabric.
4
I make sure it’s snug, but not too tight. Sweaters stretch differently, so you may need to adjust.
5
I like a 3” cuff. So I trim to @ 4” to accommodate 1/2” seam allowance and 1/2 wrap around bottom.
6
Check all edges to match. Adjust if needed.

I trim very close. Maybe too close? - yikes! But it decreases bulk and an unsightly bulge!

Iron!! Yes...I know...I iron A LOT! It’s my secret sauce.
10
A great option is to tack stitch your cuff to keep it from unfolding or rolling down.

But, I’m lazy, so I sew my cuffs snug and add a pretty button and call it good! I hope this helped!
