Victorian Blush Muffler
Winter officially arrived last week, and I'm surrounded by a wonderland of snow and ice! This event called for something warm, cozy, and a little bit girly (ok, a lot girly)! The Victorian Blush muffler is all of these things, and is guaranteed to keep you warm when the temperatures start dropping. Part of this muffler's warmth comes from using a thicker, worsted weight yarn, and it's lacy texture actually helps trap warm air, keeping you comfortable and looking cute at the same time. Win-win! The details on this beautiful Victorian style neck warmer start at the back with the flower (the name of this cowl is actually inspired by a variety of peony!), then the sides are added one at a time. It is possible to make this longer if you wish, and I've included notes on how to do that in the blog post.
NotesCaron 1 Pound is a thicker worsted weight yarn. If you substitute a thinner worsted weight such as Caron Simply Soft, your measurements will be off.
If you want a looser piece, it is possible to make this longer. Additional notes are included in the post.
