Crocheted zill mufflers

One muffler on each pair is enough.

Dancing ATS (American Tribal Style Bellydance) includes playing finger cymbals or zills. If you don’t have any music, the rythms you play are enough to dance to. They can be pretty loud though, so if you’re goind to practice at home it might be a good idea to muffle the sound. So I crocheted a pair of little “hats” for mine. I made them┬áthe simplest way possible: just crocheted in wider or narrower circles until they fit the zills. I also crocheted a little pouch using the same technique and wove in a satin ribbon to close it with.
