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!
