A fun fair isle knit! Decreases in the plain rounds shape the tam, until the very top, where a double centered decrease is employed. A variety of border and peerie patterns keep the knitting interesting. With an updated fit, this tam has a slouchy casual feel, perfect for a crisp fall apple-picking weekend, or cool summer evenings at the beach.

I used these colors:
MC 24241Camel Heather
A 24015 Garnet Heather
B 24245 Lipstick
C 24570 Blossom Heather

It has come to my attention that Knit Picks does not offer their patterns internationally, happily Ravelry does!
