"Marley" Hat and Neckwarmer


   


I bought the yarn first - Vanna's Choice in Grey Marble.  I fell in love with it and knew it was perfect for a hat and scarf.   I liked the idea of a simple neckwarmer; so ended up making this set, the Marley Hat and Neckwarmer.

The lovely texture on both hat and scarf come from a fairly simple bobble stich, staggered on every other row.  This makes the neckwarmer nice and chunky but comfortable, and gives the hat a lovely look, while keeping it open and airy so it doesn't make the wearer too warm.
