Marling, in a nutshell, is simply working with 2 strands of yarn held together at the same time. It is also an excellent way to play with color! Mini skeins, anyone? Come play with color and experiment with easy colorwork that can range from subtle to striking!

 

Skill Level: advanced beginner (some experience crocheting or knitting recommended)

Skill(s) Learned: basic marling techniques, including how to work with two strands of yarn simultaneously, as well as different ways to apply the technique for a variety of results!

Duration: 1 (one) - 2 (two) hours recommended.

 

Suggested Materials: students should bring yarn in 4 different colors of the same weight, preferably smooth and evenly plied, and hooks or needles appropriate for double original yarn weight. For example, marling with sock yarn will usually require a 4 – 5 mm hook or needle.

Homework: none!

Additional Info: Teacher will have crochet and knit samples to illustrate different ways to marl with the same colors. Sample patterns include Marl the Spectrum Cowl and the Sweet Carolina Shawl.
