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 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!
I was happy to be a beta knitter for the new Woolly Wormhead Hat collection. The Perceptions Hats are all stranded colourwork (hello, my fave), and each has a beautiful crown. I mean – look at them! I choose Number Three, which turned out to be Hermes: “the Greek god of travel who bridged the […]
In the last six months, I’ve sewed a whole bunch of face masks. Most face masks fit well, but none were perfect. We picked up a couple of ready-made reusable face masks to try out, and J decided he preferred them. The pattern is easy as anything to make – easier than any other pattern […]
