Hi! I'm Sarah Wilson, also known as the Sexy Knitter. I started crafting at a very young age and have tried a little bit of almost everything - sewing, quilting, cross-stitch, needlepoint, embroidery, crewel, plastic canvas, weaving, knitting, crochet, beading, jewelry making...the list goes on. These days, I am a full-time knitwear designer whose work has been seen in publications like Interweave Knits, Knitty.com, Knitscene Magazine, The Knitter, Your Knitting Life, and more! You can find me online at sexyknitter.com, or on social networking sites (like Twitter, Ravelry, and Etsy) as TheSexyKnitter.View all patterns by designer (81) »
Inspired by a Southerner?s desire to keep as warm as possible during the winter months, this thrummed muff features diamond patterning across the body, intricately cabled cuffs, and a wrist strap to keep it handy. The 5-page PDF includes a link to a video tutorial for making thrums and inserting them into your knitting, as well as stitch-by-stitch written instructions and charts for the colorwork and cabled sections.
Fun facts: The muff uses just 200 yards of worsted weight yarn; the colorwork is achieved by thrumming with two different colors across the body of the muff!
