Since the winter temperatures don't show any sign of lifting, I thought you may enjoy this free pattern for a 1947 cozy muff and matching hat. Many vintage muffs are made of fur but this is a beautiful fur-free alternative in crochet. The muff is in puff stitch with metallic threads throughout and the hat has a small brim.  This muff pattern calls for a Dritz muff bed, which I assume is a black muff that you can decorate. Since such a thing isn't readily available anymore I've included a few links for a DIY muff. I made two using the Handmade Charlotte tutorial with thrift store sweaters and fiber fill and they turned out beautifully!
