This twiddlemuff pattern is designed to provide texture on the outside, plus the luxury of a soft lining on the inside, to give you a high-quality twiddlemuff for those in need. It is perfect for using up the last little balls of yarn!

Twiddlemuffs are particularly useful for dementia sufferers and their carers. The unfamiliar surroundings of a hospital can cause an unsettled patient to fiddle with medical equipment, such as IV lines. But a twiddlemuff can keep those fingers busy elsewhere. They are also useful for autism and Alzheimer patients.
