Marla and Sami Collection

Marla is made from 2 strands of lighter-weight yarn that have been dyed separately and then plied together. When worked, Marla creates a marled fabric, where the colors are uniquely distributed. Sami, the semi-solid DK-weight sister to Marla, has a palette of 11 coordinating colors!

Brioche ribs change color in a swirl around a simple cowl, letting one tweedy color of Marla share the spotlight with a semi-solid Sami. The technique is much easier than it looks: all it takes is moving a ring marker over a couple stitches every few rounds.
