As it is said, Winter is Coming! So why not make something to keep yourself or someone else warm while looking stylish at the same time! This hand warmer muff is just the thing, AND, AND, the the pattern is free!
Powder Muff Girl was designed with warmth in mind. Perfect to gift or keep for yourself. Super soft, warm and trendy; this hand muff is a timeless winter ensemble showpiece. This hand muff is a fast work-up and versatile in construction. The inner part of the muff is worked first and then the outer design is worked, which can be anything from plaid, dropped stitches, color pooling or whatever else you can think up! One size fits most for child and adult. Grab some yarn and a hook and get started on this fun project!!
This is such a versatile pattern, but it is worked inside out. First you work the center (the warm stuff) and then you work the outer part - which is where you can let the designer in you soar!
