Stupid Samantha

When I was little I wanted an American Girl Doll SO BAD! Samantha, the Victorian era doll, was my favorite, and part of what I liked so much about her was her amazing plaid cape, fuzzy white hat and matching muff. This love intensified when my elementary school frememy not only got Samantha for as a birthday present at her American Girl Doll themed birthday party, but also the matching fuzzy muff she could wear! It was torture!

20+ years later and I’ve finally gotten my revenge with this ridiculously awesome and way better than a fuzzy white muff Granny Square Muff pattern. Crocheted granny squares seamed together and assembled around a knit lining to keep your hands extra warm.

Eat your heart out, Samantha.
