Faded Splendor Tam
This classic tam pattern by Janine Bajus is one of six patterns available in the Fall 2011 issue of ColorKnits, a revolutionary digital eMag from Interweave. The tam includes traditional Fair Isle motifs and muted colors inspired by the lovely shades of faded Persian rugs. It has three parts: the band, the body, and the wheel at the top, which is formed by seven double decreases every other round. The body is a straight tube; the distinctive tam shape is created by blocking after the knitting is finished.
Errata: Rounds 15 and 21--the last stitch of these rounds should be Stonewash (not Old Rose).
