Vintage Knitting Pattern
35. For a Muff. (#29)
Cast on 80 stitches with the lightest shade, and knit 3 plain rows: in the fourth row pass the wool round the pin, seam 2 stitches together, pass the wool round the pin, seam 2 together, and so on to the end of the row; join the next lightest shade, and knit 3 plain rows. In the fourth row, seam 2 stitches together, pass the wool round the pin, seam 2 together, and so on to the end of the row. Continue in this manner, knitting 3 plain rows, and an open row of each shade, till the darkest; then again to the lightest: this forms 1 stripe, 4 of which are required. The last stripe should finish with the lightest shade, to correspond with the beginning. The shading of each stripe must be reversed; thus, first begin with the lightest shade and knit to the darkest, then knit from the darkest to the lightest, and then again to the darkest, and so on. This should be done in double German wool, in five shades of sable or chinchilla colours, and satin put underneath the knitting of the same colour.
