This hat was inspired by the hat that Emily Deschanel wore in the Bones episode, The Blackout in the Blizzard. It is a slouchy tam with a pom pom, and fully finished crown decreases (to allow knitters to omit the pom pom if it’s not their thing).

The pattern has been reformatted to include an additional size, adjustments were made to the shaping, the increase section has been adjusted for ascetics and clarity, and the sample has been reknit in a widely available yarn. In general, it has been completely updated to be more representative of my current body of work :)

To knit this pattern, you will need:

  • aprox 100 - 125 yds of chunky weight yarn
  • one 16” US 9 (5.5mm) circular needle, one 16” US 10.5 (6.5mm) circular needle, and one set of US 10.5 (6.5mm) DPN; or size necessary to hit the gauge.
  • stitch markers
  • cable needle
  • darning needle
  • large pom pom maker (optional)

To make a beret instead of a tam, work fewer repeats of the body chart.

Special thanks to Jen Gillis for test knitting, helping track down the stitch, and supplying photos.
