Marlon Hat is a squishy cabled hat knitted in The Yarn Collective’s Hudson Worsted. As soon as I got my hands on this yarn I was amazed by its softness and beautiful stitch defnition. It is like made for knitting cables. I wanted to create something that was as
warm and soft as our kitten Marlon, who napped on my lap during the whole time I worked on this design. I hope this hat will keep you as warm as well.
