Okey, here's the promised tut to my hihatin ^^
it's stupidly simple really, though I don't know if you'll get my instructions ^^



okey, start off with two pieces of fabric like this. (okey, my lines aren't really stright, but they're supposed to be. All but the side ones of course, seeing as the top is 80 cm and the bottom only 50 =)
My fabric is two-couloured, light grey on what I used as the inside, and dark on the outside, incase you wonder why it keep changing colours =)



sew them both together on the 80 cm sides. (of course you might realise now you could've started out with a diamond-shaped size like this from the begging and you're very right. I just happened to have a square pieces of fabric, and not a long one.
You'll have to excuse my cat, she's everywhere all the time.



fold it in half along the long side sides and sew the sleeves together from the edge and about 55 cm in towards the middle on each side.



Cut a hole on one of the sides like this (this will be the front)



Hem the edges on the front and back. Since I had this two-coloured fabric I choose to hem the inside out, rather than folding the inside in like usually, to get the light grey detail all around.



Cut two squares the size 25x25 cm and sew them together like a tube. Then fold the ends of the tube towards the middle, like on the picture.



Fold the ends once more towards the middle to create the wrist-parts.



Tuck the sleeves of the hihatin inside this wrist-circle-thingies and sew them on. (this might be a bit tricky on the machine, depending on the thickness of the fabric and stuff, so you might have to do this by hand. On my white one I managed on the machine, but not on this one.

Now, sew some kind of closing-thing in the front of your liking. I just made little loops and pulled a cord through it.

And now.. you're done =) doesn't it feel way to easy?
Mine is quite big cause that's the way I like them, so you could make it smaller if you wish.



and here's the final result =)

good luck!
and if you ever make some yourself, I'd love to see them! post post post ^^

glad I could help.
And it's not my design, like I said it's some finnish thing. I only discovered it because it was part of our village's clothing-culture at Dragonbane (a big international larp I went to last year), so I really can't take the credit =)

Oohh, that looks like it'll be super comfortable during the winter!  I might have to make one for the 2 days that it gets cold here so I can save on my heating bill Wink
I loved the white linen-ey one you made too Smiley

Awesome tute, I was struggling with making my own this afternoon.  I think I've made some fun additions to the pattern, at least in preliminary sketches, we'll see what actually comes of it.

Nice work, lady.

Oh! I love that! I'm definitely going to have to try that soon! Thanks for the tute. I couldn't see what the lines for were very well in your other post.

*Laughs* well, if they wanna give us swedes the credits they're free to do so, even if we have nothing to do with it.
Swedish folklore, right... I can really see all those brutal gods of old run around in hihatins ^^
and the fairy, dancing around in the mist wearing them. suuuure, why not? *roll eyes*



Thanks everyone, it means a lot- really.
Three weeks from now my teen-sewing course will start so I'm a bit nervous about that seeing as I'm gonna handle it all by myself. But I feel a bit better now, so thanks =)
(And don't worry, I'm way better at sewing than these stuff might show.)
