Darla’s just a darlin’ little thing. You can wear the split brim folded up for a jaunty little cap, or folded down, with the slit to the side or back, for a slouchier look. A very simple knit, suitable for novices, but with quirky enough to hold the interest of more advanced knitters as well (it’s great for tv-knitting.)

The yarn shown is a Malabrigo test yarn called “Mmm” (100% merino). It’s not yet commercially available, but several substitutes are recommended (Malabrigo Silky Merino, Madelinetosh Tosh DK - really any somewhat wooly, smooth dk yarn would work.)
