A quick little tam, decorated with a simple beaded stitch. The inspiration for this design was the sight of candles winking out into the darkness.

Finished Size: 20.5 (27.5)“ circumference at widest point.

I’ve had some questions about working the beaded bow stitch used in this pattern, so I’ve put together a pictorial, you can find it here.
