Now that we know what thrums are, and how to make them, we're ready to insert them into our mittens!
The method is different depending on whether you are crocheting your mittens or knitting them.
Marlaina Bird, the designer of the Thrummed Mittens in the Winter 2009 issue of Interweave Crochet, made a handy little video to show you exactly how thrums are done in Crochet Land.

I, Sandi Wiseheart, she of the cold fingers and mitten lust, have worked up a step-by-step photo tutorial for all you knitting fans out there. The pattern I am using is Jennifer Appleby's Thrummed Mittens pattern from our online store. (Making this tutorial was a good excuse to get started on my own pair of thrummed mittens, since Marlaina's crocheted ones have to be returned now that I've had a chance to study them.)

I hope you've enjoyed our week on "stuffed mitten making." I just
love reaching inside these mittens and finding lots of tiny little sheep
fluffs waiting for my poor cold hands. May your fingers and thumbs never shiver!
