Availability note: Petite Purls went offline at the beginning of 2015. I am planning to re-release this tam pattern as part of a set; in the meantime, I’ve noticed that it’s still available at archive.org (see link in these pattern notes).

Kids always seem to be so delighted by butterflies – now they can have them dancing about their heads whenever they like!
