“The yarn does the work!”
We designed this simple, free pattern to take advantage of the brilliant engineering of self-striping sock yarns! With the same circumference as a sock cuff, the Longstocking Muffler has the look of stripes or Fair Isle with none of the work. It’s the perfect project when you just want to knit round and round and relax. Add pom-poms for a little pizzazz!

We’ve knit this slightly quicker version of the Longstocking Muffler in DK-weight Regia 6-Ply Color. This self-patterning yarn is a nice, soft blend of wool and polyamide—sturdy, machine-washable, and dryer safe!

Approx. 4”/10cm wide x 46”/117cm (100”/254cm) long, excluding pom-poms.
Directions given for 1-skein version; 2-skein version in parentheses ( ).
