Knitted Merino slippers thrummed with BFL

Thrumming Slippers – Plus Knitting and Crochet Patterns!

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…

If you need a hat with all-over thrums, check out this beanie pattern. Unlike some other thrummed hat patterns I’ve seen, it’s not too bulky.

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.
