The Design

"Elegant Nostalgia."

The handsome Houndstooth Muffler is a classic, striking accessory—and a free pattern. A two-color, checked pattern with notched corners, houndstooth is nostalgic, yet timelessly elegant—and a very engaging colorwork pattern. Knit in the round with a bit of ribbing at either end, this muffler’s double layers are doubly warm and quite sharp tucked inside your tailored wool coat.

In Rowan Valley Tweed, the Houndstooth Muffler has just the right amount of woolliness. Light, strong, and hardy, this fingering-weight yarn is spun from 100% wool (a thread of which is soft lambswool). The color palette of earthy greys and richly flecked jewel tones show up handsomely in this two-toned stitch!
