Crochet Twiddle muffs
 
I recently joined a local knitting/crochet group that focuses on making and donating things for the vulnerable categories. For example in spring they donated octopi for the preemies, and this fall I managed to join the group in making twiddle muffs. 
If you are wondering what a twiddle muff is – it is a sensory band that has different items attached to it to keep dementia patients’ hands active and busy. They contain strands
of textured ribbons, beads, and various fabrics attached both inside
and outside. People with dementia often have restless hands and like to
have something to keep their hands occupied.
Very important, all decorating items should be securely attached so that patients cannot pull them out. 
Here are the two of the muffs that I made. I plan on making a free pattern for a muff, I just need to steal a bit of time.
