Felted Neck Muff

Lion Brand® Fishermen's Wool® - Vanna's Glamour®

GAUGE:

16 sts + 24 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS), before felting.
EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR THIS PROJECT.
The above gauge is provided as a reference - the felting process will affect the finished size.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

1. Due to the nature of the felting process, the size of your Muff may not match the pattern measurements exactly.
2. Muff is worked in St st (k on RS, p on WS) following charts and from written instructions.
3. When working from charts, work from right to left on RS rows and from left to right on WS rows; carry color not in use across WS of work.
4. Yarn A is worked with a single strand; yarn B is worked with 2 strands held tog.
5. If desired, continue to rep Chart 6 until almost all yarn has been used for a longer muff.
