ABOUT
Mini Marl Hat is the first in a series of non-sock patterns designed to use sock sets. This pattern explores two techniques to play with sock sets: holding yarn double to achieve a DK weight, and marling the full skein and mini skein together — hence the name! This hat is worked from the brim up, and the brim is folded and worked closed. There are 6 rounds of colourwork, for a bit of fun half-way through the project.
