Today's Featured Design:
PATTERN: Musselburgh Hat by Ysolda Teague
YARN: Verb's Nibble in Bay Sailor (1 skein) and Marine Layer (1 skein) 


Musselburgh has been an incredibly popular pattern due to its versatility and ease. 

Shawn has cast-on with Nibble in Bay Sailor. Soon, they will switch to Marine Layer. They are still deciding where to stripe the Bay Sailor with Marine Layer, or knit Marine Layer solid.

This hat is double knit and reversible. So Shawn will be able to choose whether they want to wear the Bay Sailor on the outside or Marine Layer - maybe they will switch off! 

Nibble is made of fine California wool and milled in Wyoming.


Here is Ysolda's description of Musselburgh: 

"The original swatchless hat pattern: a double-layered beanie with 4-point crown shaping. The multi-gauge pattern now includes 9 gauges, for yarn weights between light fingering and DK, and 6 sizes.

In what is essentially a three step project you’ll start with a centre-out cast-on and increase for the first crown; the next part is a beautifully meditative knit (perfect for those zoom calls!) of stockinette in the round; finally, you will finish off the hat by mirroring the initial shaping with decreases. This simple canvas is perfect for exploring your creativity through yarn choice, stripes or colour blocking. The hat is fully reversible, so working each half in a different colour or stripe sequence can turn it into two completely different hats in one."


In case you have a skein of Frond in Marine Layer, and you would like to knit a Musselburgh, you could hold the following yarns together:

+ Nibble and Frond
+ Annapurna and Frond
+ Horizon and Frond

We are so excited to see what you make with Marine Layer. Keep us tagged with #marinelayerkal on IG.
