Thrumming is a technique typicaly used in knitting, but designer Marlaina Bird cleverly adapted it to crochet. Unspun wool is secured to stitches as they're worked, creating a fleecelike lining on the inside of the mitten and leaving a lovely pattern on the outside. As the mittens are worn, the wool felts, resulting in durable, extremely warm winter outerwear.
