I knit a pair of slippers for my sister’s Christmas present. Cute, right?
But wait until you turn them inside out…
They’re thrummed! The little white stitches you can see on the outside are actually twists of wool roving. That makes the slippers extra snuggly and warm.
I used this pattern to make these slippers. They’re knit flat, so it’s a good one to practise thrumming on! I made a few adjustments as I went, winging the stitch count as I was using sock yarn held triple instead of the recommended yarn. It’s not a colour I like at all, so this was a bit of a destash project, but it’s fine for slippers and should be wear fairly well.
Now I want to thrum evvvvverything! Here’s some of the thrumming patterns I’ve been drooling over, in both knit and crochet…
Thrummed Patterns Roundup
Knitted Snowflake Thrum Mitts for a Toddler
How CUTE are these baby mitts? I bet they’d be easy to size up too, with a thicker yarn. Don’t forget to add a thumb for adult mittens! Or…
Knit these thrummed mittens
How snug do these look? Plus I love the little dots of colour from the thrums.
Are mittens or gloves not cosy enough for you? You need to invest in a muff! This tube of knitted fabric is stuffed with cozy thrums. That’ll keep anyone’s fingers warm!
Thrummed Outer Vest
This vest uses thrums differently: they’re decorative as well as warm! If I were knitting this professional-looking vest, I’d be tempted to increate the button band to prevent any breezes sneaking through.
Thrummed Tea Cozy
Why should you have all the thrum? Whip up this thrummed tea cozy, and your tea will stay piping hot for longer than you’ll believe!
Knitting a Welcome Blanket is art, politics… and a lot of fun. If you’re reading this in 2017, then you’ve heard of Trump’s proposed boarder wall with Mexico. It’s almost 2,000 miles long. What if many crafters around the world, knitted and crocheted blankets from 2,000 miles of yarn? And these blankets were displayed in […]

I’m not a royal watcher, but I get the appeal. Those royals! They’re like a real life BBC drama (I will watch a good BBC drama about the royals. I get it. I do). So when I saw this pop up on my Facebook feed, I knew I had to share it. Little Princess Charlotte, […]
Yep, I block my socks! Not every time I wear them, but when they’re fresh off the needles. Before now, I’ve just patted them out onto a towel, but now I’ve made myself a couple of pairs of home made sock blockers. I’ve spent a bit of time drooling over beautiful sock blockers on Etsy […]
I’ve had this beautiful ball of lace weight yarn for a couple of years now. I’m turning it into a giant granny square. I’m using a 3.5mm hook, and a slightly looser than average granny pattern – two chains between clusters, three chains at each corner. That gives it a really loose, open look. Lacier […]
