Thanks!  I keep looking at the muff and stroking it like a complete geek because I'm so pleased one of my hairbrained schemes turned out right!

I have a piece of white polar fleece I'm going to line it with maybe tonight, and I'm going to add a pocket, I think.  I may even make some of those little hot-cold bags, small hand-sized ones, that I could put in the pocket to make this the toastiest little fashion accessory ever (but then maybe that's too practical and I should just enjoy it for the fashion fluff that it is).

...I made the flowers like this:
1.  ch 4; join with sl st to form a ring
2.  ch 1; sc 10 times in ring; sl st to beginning ch
3.  (ch 2; sk 1 sc; sl st in next sc) around, which should give you five little ch-2 loops
4.  sl st into the first ch-2 loop; ch 2 and then 4 dc in the loop; ch 2 and sl st in the same loop to finish the petal; sl st into next ch-2 loop and repeat procedure.
5.  Can you find the skipped sc back in step three?  It should be at the bottom center of each of the five petals you've just made.  You want to sl st into the back loop of that skipped sc (or frankly, poke into anything in roughly the right spot and the flower won't be too warped) then ch 3, and sl st in the next skipped sc.  You should end up with five loops again, just as in step 3, except they will be ch-3 loops.
6.  sl st into the first ch-3 loop; ch 2 and then 7 dc in the loop; ch 2 and sl st in the same loop to finish the petal; sl st into next ch-3 loop and repeat procedure.  Finish off and weave in ends.

I'm just learning how to crochet and I want to try making your little flowers (they're much cuter than the lame flowers in all the how-to books I have) but I don't know how to read the crochet-lingo patterns yet. On a scale of just-beginner to advanced, how hard are these to make?

I think they're pretty easy.  If you've never made a flower before, it might be a weird experience the first time through, but there aren't a lot of complicated stitches or anything.  And the good thing about crocheting anything is if you start doing it and discover you've made a mistake (or you just hate how it looks), you can always just unravel it and call it a day.

If you've got some little bit of yarn around in any color, try making one of the flowers and see how it goes.

Great idea and tutorial!  Thank you so much for posting all of it Smiley  When you get the lining in, will you post a pic or tell us how you did it?  I am definately going to make one of these.  I remember muffs from when I was little and they were great for keeping your hands warm, I wonder why you don't see more of them?  Thanks again, beautiful stuff!

awesome. those are great!!! i've gotta make one! i'm so mad right now... the only problem with keeping all of your hooks in one little container is that it really REALLY sucks when you can't figure out where you have put it!! grrrrr... must find hooks!
