Premier Anti- Pilling Soft Marl Yarn – Winter Warmer Patterns.

Premier Anti- Pilling Soft Marl Yarn

I have been dying to try our new exciting range of Marl yarn by Premier Everyday Soft, so I thought I would make some winter garments to show off this new yarn.

What is Marl Yarn? Marled yarns are made by twisting together two or more different colours. The result is a single strand of yarn with several colours twisted around one another.

What are the advantages & disadvantages I found using Premier Marl yarn? There were no disadvantages for me, only advantages. I found it to be soft and lush, gliding through my fingers. Like all Premier yarns, it is a smooth soft yarn to work with and slides through the hook with no trouble at all.

What would I recommend creating, using Marl Yarn?  I can recommend using Premier Marl yarn for any garments including beanies, scrolls, scarves, can also be great for blankets and kids clothing.  The range has 7 beautiful colours, it is very versatile and only really comes down to your personal choice and what you want to create using it.

Is it at an affordable cost and most importantly worth its price? Yes, it is definitely worth the cost! Considering you are getting 100 grams in each ball, I would say it is absolutely worth the cost. I only used 1 ball to create 2 beanies and even had some left over.  (see pattern below)

 

Crocheted Beanie and Neck Scroll FREE pattern.

I created two beanies using Premier Marl navy yarn along with some leftover navy and white velvet. At first, I thought it was a bit too much using all of the one colour, so I blended the Marl Yarn with some left-over Velvet yarn. I think this gave the Marl yarn a nicer look and broke up the strong marl colour. If you would like to make some winter warmers, you will find the FREE patterns below which are my own designs, so I hope you like them?

FPDC x 1 into first ST BPDC x 1 into next ST, this will give you the rib effect to make your beanie sit nice and tight on your head.

 

Finish off and sew all ends with a darning needle. I wanted to add a Pom Pom, so I found some matching colours and glued on top of the beanie.
