Super easy and fun, the Twiddle Muff Knitting Pattern is a cool way to play with yarn and make it up as you go!
That’s right, What’s so great about this knitting pattern is you get to decide as you go what yarn to use, what colors you like, what stitches you’ll create, and what objects you might want to decorate it with!
There really isn’t a way to mess it up! 😊 Each piece is truly one of a kind. I love it, and I think you will, too!
What is a Twiddle Muff?
A twiddle muff (one word or two) is a knitted sleeve that incorporates various textures and accessories that can be touched and manipulated. The sleeve or “muff” is a source of visual, tactile, and sensory stimulation and also serves to keep hands warm! What is it used for? People with Alzheimer’s disease or severe cognitive impairment are often restless and like to have their hands busy. It was discovered, especially in Great Britain where these sleeves (“Twiddle Muffs”) are widespread, that in certain cases, they can appease the patients in times of anguish or restlessness.
Materials – straight US 10 or 10.5 (6 / 6.5mm) knitting needles – a selection of yarns of any color and texture (a great way to use up leftovers!) – buttons, ribbons, pom poms, or other tactile embellishments
