Fluffy Hat and Hand Muff
When I was a little girl I had the most adorable, fluffy, luxurious bonnet and hand muff ever! This set was inspired by my childhood memory. It’s a quick and easy set to make up. The fur yarn can be a little tricky to work with and I find feeling each stitch works best as it is difficult to see the stitches. Of course you can use any type of comparable weight yarn you like. This is a fun one to test different novelty yarns with too!
I’ve sized it for younger and older girls, but it isn’t difficult to adjust to any size you like by adding length and width. Have fun!

Repeat Row1 until piece measures 16” (20”). Fasten off.
To Join: With outside facing you pull the inside lining through the fur side with ends together so that the lining is on the inside of the muff.
Using a tapestry needle, sl st edge closed. The fur section is designed to be longer than the lining so that it curves over the sides for a nicer finish.
For Neck Strap: Make a a ch about 35” long with the yarn you prefer. Sew ends securely on either side of muff.
Optional: Decorate with beads as desired.
Row 1: With Worsted Weight Yarn, ch 40 (48) approximately 9 ½” (11 ½”) long; sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each remaining st.

Repeat Row 2 until piece measures 7” (9”).
Fold piece in half so that beginning ch is at the bottom, sl st across top to create a seam at crown of head. This will be the wrong side of the hat.
