  • The Kaleidoscopes & Tams pattern is one hat with 3 different Fair Isle patterns to choose from: Phoenix of Love, Woodland Fantasy, or Grandma’s Garden. You will need approximately 220 total yards, in several colors, depending on your design choices.

“Roughly speaking, hats blocked on head-shaped bowls remain hats; those blocked on dinner plates become tams. Choose a design from the three given here and have fun with it. Vary the pattern and background colors, and the knitting will begin to take on a life of its own.”
