CODE EXTENDED: My sympathies to the family and friends and followers of MTM on her death.
The CODE 88Stitches for 33 % off has been extended to Feb. 15, 2017 in honour of her death.

A wonderful re-creation of the Mary Tyler Moore Tam inspired by the MTM tam worn by MTM in the opening sequence of her show. Knit in twisted stockinette for stitch definition and includes instructions on traveling jogless stripes. Very tossable!

Design was triple-tested and I’ve made several more over the past few years, on commission on Etsy.

If you want a much larger hat, or your gauge is a little high (more than 20 sts in 4 inches), I suggest casting on up to 104 stitches, increasing to 150 at the turn, and decreasing back out in increments of 20 sts on 6th and every 4th round following tam edge, until 90 sts, then rapid decrease at peak (starting at green) to 60/40/20 by
