We've all seen Muffs before, I had one as a child and I see them occasionally appear at winter weddings. What I hadn't seen through my years of crocheting were many crocheted muffs so I decided to give it a go.
The title represents the use of three different shades of grey yarn which run 50 rows across & 50 rows downwards with grey lining.
I love experimenting with old ideas.

Step 2: Creating the I-cord
If you are unfamiliar with the French Knitting technique using a dolly please don't despair. There are plenty of video tutorials available online if you google "How to French Knit" with a dolly. You can also knit your own i-cord or buy a ready made one from an online store.
To be honest it looks a lot harder than it actually is. I worked continues rounds using the transparent french knitting dolly & pin until the i-cord measured 40 inches.
