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.

So when I think about a muffler I think about that little thing you place you hands in - like a tube. That must be something altogether different. This is a beautiful piece from both the front and back. However, this for me not practical. But this is beautiful.

Pretty-pretty from the back and yummy buttons on the front. I almost feel like I would need to be dressed up to wear this. It would be a perfect addition to my outer wear for when I take the dogs out for walkies to keep the chill at bay. Perhaps if I elect a more subtle shade. This is beautiful.

If I had only seen the front photo of this project, I never would have guessed about the lovely rosette in the middle. Talk about a distinctive look! Im glad the designer recommended the Caron One Pounder for this project. It is a heavy yarn for its weight classification (4) so its ideal for warm hats and scarves. Its also great for adult slippers where you dont want to double the yarn.

This isnt exactly what I was expecting to find a pattern for when I saw the title of Muffler. I thought that a muffler was what you put you hands in to keep them warm similar to the ones depicted on older photos of girls on ice skates. This is a very pretty piece and love the pink.

So, so very pretty and feminine! i I am blown away at the beauty. However, I would disagree that this is an intermediate pattern. I really think that an advanced beginner could handle this well enough, and come out the other side feeling VERY accomplished! I imagine this muffler over a classic wool coat- muffler in red or ivory against a black wool coat.
