Muffs of the Regency Period were characteristically made from fur or silk and were quite large. I chose a chunky yarn and the leaf pattern to give the muff depth and texture. My goal was to create a beautiful and functional accessory. The piece is knit in the round and utilizes several techniques: provisional cast on, light lace pattern incorporating increases and decreases, without being difficult to create.

Size : 13” wide and 22” circumference for muff ; 18” for cord
