It has been such a joy and honor to be one of the North American Brand Ambassadors for King Cole since May 2021. In preparation for the last Make Along with my fellow ambassadors, we were asked to design accessory patterns with a specific yarn. This turned into the Marielle Mommy & Me Set!

The Marielle Mommy & Me Set morphed a bit from the original idea, which was a traditional large-brimmed sunhat and regular straight edge scarf. As I was working out the marielle stitch in the round, and wanting to include it in the brim, let’s just say that it was not playing nice. Instead I figured out a method to maintiain the shape of this lacy stitch and create a super cute floppy brim. Personally, I think the floppy brim is perfect for Spring, and it’s much easier on one’s hand since there is no millinery wire or stiffening spray to deal with.

The slanted ends of the Marielle scarf was a happy accident! Oftentimes, there are at least one stitch at the beginning and the end of a row with a stitch pattern that requires a multiple, especially with lace and mesh patterns. In this design, it’s really easy to create the increase at the beginning and end of each row, that the scarf can easily be made wider.

I chose three colors for the Marielle Mommy & Me Set because my twin daughters love wearing colorful clothes and accessories, and many spring attire tends be colorful. If you prefer one color, then definitely choose what you’ll enjoy most.

If you found your way here because of the King Cole Spring Accessories Make Along or the Marielle Set CAL, THANK YOU for joining in the fun! Keep reading to learn more the King Cole Make Along, and hop over HERE for the CAL details.

YARN

As mentioned above, I am on of the North American Brand Ambassadors for King Cole. It has been a great opportunity to introduce my Yarnie friends to their yarns over the past several months. For the Marielle Mommy & Me Set, King Cole provided Cottonsmooth DK. It is a DK weight #3 100% mercerized cotton that is available in 10 wonderful colors: pale pink, white, ecru, pale blue, latter, silver, lilac, aqua, navy and sun. Each 100g skein comes with 218 yards / 200 meters.

I found Cottonsmooth DK to hold up to it’s name, as it was soft, has a slight sheen, and did not spilt much as crocheting. This great DK weight yarn worked well for the hat and the scarf, which required different drape. I think you would enjoy working with Cottonsmooth DK, even if you’re not a fan of cotton yarns.

At the time of this writing, you can find a stockiest or purchase some skeins from Wool Warehouse. This yarn is reasonably priced at approximately $6.65 per skein. If you enjoy shopping at LoveCrafts, Cottonsmooth DK is listed as out of stock and for $8.50 per skein. You can request to be notified when the yarn becomes available. Also, I would compare the total of yarn plus shipping to determine the best deal.

It’s bittersweet to participate in the Spring Accessories Make Along, as it’s the last one as one of the North American Brand Ambassadors. This Make Along will feature two of the newest cotton yarns by King Cole, Cottonsmooth DK and Cotton Socks 4 Ply.

Each pattern is an accessory for women, and includes crochet and knit patterns for the multi-crafty folks! Week one featured the Spring Blanket Shawl by Oombawka Design Crochet, and this pattern is the featured pattern for Week Two! Check out the rest of the schedule, and bookmark the page to not miss out on any of the gorgeous patterns during the King Cole Make Along!

That’s it for Part 1 of the Marielle Set CAL! Check back next week for the next part.

Week 2 of the #marielleCAL

This week we’ll be working on the lacy scarf of the Marielle Mommy & Me Set. I was designed to utilize all three colors like the hat, but have fun choosing one or two colors for your scarf. The scarf has angled ends, and it a bit shorter than a standard scarf since it’s meant to be worn during spring and other warm weather days.

INSTRUCTIONS: Scarf

Row 1: Using larger hook, 208 fsc or any multiple of four 

Row 2: CSDC in first st, sk next 2 sts, [2 tr, ch 2, dc] in next st, *sk next 3 sts, [2 tr, ch 2, dc] in next st; rep from * until end, turn – 52 [2 tr, ch 2, dc], 1 dc

Row 4: CSTR in first st, ch 1, [2 tr, ch 2, dc] in first ch-2 sp, *[2 tr, ch 2, dc] in next ch-2 sp; rep from * across until 4 sts rem, [2 tr, ch 2, dc] in last st, FO Color C, turn – 54 [2 tr, ch 2, dc], 1 tr, 1 ch

Row 5: With Color A, CSTR in first st, ch 1, [2 tr, ch 2, dc] in first ch-2 sp, *[2 tr, ch 2, dc] in next ch-2 sp; rep from * across until 4 sts rem, [2 tr, ch 2, dc] in last st, turn – 55 [2 tr, ch 2, dc], 1 tr, 1 ch

Row 6: CSTR in first st, ch 1, [2 tr, ch 2, dc] in first ch-2 sp, *[2 tr, ch 2, dc] in next ch-2 sp; rep from * across until 4 sts rem, [2 tr, ch 2, dc] in last st, turn – 56 [2 tr, ch 2, dc], 1 tr, 1 ch

Row 7: Rep Row 5 – 57 [2 tr, ch 2, dc], 1 tr, 1 ch

Row 8: Ch 1, hdc in first st, ch 2, sk next 2 sts, *sl st in next st, ch 3, sk next 4 sts; rep from * across until 4 sts rem, sl st in next st, ch 2, sk next 2 sts, hdc in last st, turn – 2 hdc, 57 sl st, 172 ch

Row 9: Ch 1, sc in each st, FO – 286 sc

There’s one more part…

I was going to post all of the scarf pattern, but many of us probably need a little time to get started on the scarf, as they typically take longer to make than a hat. I’ll update the post next week for the finishing touches of the #marielleCAL.

Don’t forget to post your pictures under each post in the FB group. If you’re not on FB, head over the Marielle Set CAL post to see how you can participate too!

Rnd 2: Ch 1, *sc in each st to ch-1 sp, (ch 1, dc, ch 1) in ch-1 sp, rep from * around, sl st to join, FO
