Description from knitty.com:
Mittens really limit what you can do with your hands...enter the muff. Because of the large amount of space inside a muff, it keeps you nice and toasty, yet you can take your hands in and out quickly. It's great for a stroll down a snowy lane and watching a movie on a chilly night.
This muff is knit with all your little bits of leftovers and is a great reminder of past knitting projects. The outside is worked with two strands of yarn -- alternating one yarn every row. The inside lining is ribbed for a cozy feel.
Don't have scraps? The notes at the end of the pattern give instructions for a striped muff.
