hometown day four - the muff pattern!

another busy day yesterday - did some tai chi, some mending, visited at the hospital with a cousin who drove in from the laurentians to see mum, wrote up the meet me in st louis-inspired muff and and matching muffler patterns! you can download it here. techniques you will need: grafting (or three-needle bind-off if you don't like grafting), figure-8 cast on (great tutorial on knitty.com), cabling, i-cord. there's also a small amount of sewing together for the muff. they're knit in bulky, so they go pretty quickly. enjoy!

n.b.: i was going to put pics in the pdf, but that made it 7 megs instead of 35 k... so until i get around to editing images, you'll just have to look for them here.


  1. Two thoughts:
    1) Put your name on the PDF, for your own copyright protection, and so knitters may look for other designs with your name!
    2) Include a photo of the finished project, to encourage other so knit it!

    Thank you for the generous gift of your pattern. I am off to make a muff for chemo patients, as I understand that not only their heads get cold!

    1. i have a long-term goal of re-doing all my pdfs (and updating my etsy store, and posting a bunch of patterns i have written up but done nothing with, and and and... one of these days!
