Marlaina "Marly" Bird fled the world of financial services to launch her Yarn Thing podcast and hasn't looked back since. To Marly, a bi-craftsy girl who both knits and crochets, the yarn is the star, not how you work with it. She's creative director for Bijou Basin Ranch Yarns and the co-author of Curvy Crochet (Leisure Arts, 2011). You've seen her designs in Knit Simple, Interweave Crochet, Knitscene, Inside Crochet, Wild Fiber and Petite Purls, and in the books Perfectly Plus and Knitting Plus. In her spare time she raises three kids in suburban Denver.

When I first learned to knit I became very fascinated with the different techniques used in knitting that had not been attempted in crochet...yet. Then, I saw a pair of thrummed knit mittens and noticed that not only were they super soft but remarkably warm! I just knew I had to find a way to use that same technique for a crocheted mitten. After all, the thrums are a perfect way to line the inside of a crocheted mitten which tends to have more space between stitches than knitted one has. Voila, I created a way to crochet a thrum into your stitch so it won't come undone and we have a pattern that is simply perfect.
Pattern includes both written instructions and charts and YouTube tutorials.
