Designed to coordinate with my Mica Mitts, Mica Tam combines the twisted rib stitch with a beaded variation of feather and fan. The tam is worked from the brim to the top and is designed with just the right amount of “slouch”!

Thanks to JanElinRN for the great idea!

Beads are optional of course! The pattern includes a link to my video tutorial for working with them.
