The Nellas Telrúnya Aviator Tam Pattern

Q- Why is it knitted inside-out?
A- Purls are generally looser than than knits. This makes the hat floppier.

You don’t need a kilt to appreciate the absolutely gorgeous nature of this hat. This Scottish-styled over-sized Tam o’Shanter bonnet pattern is modeled after period aviator caps. It has a tall band, ear flaps, long tasseled braids, a large pom and ribbon detailing. For men, just omit the ribbon. Available in regular and large.

2 skeins of Lion-Brand Wool-Ease worsted weight yarn in the main color &

Wool-Ease is an Aran weight yarn. If you use a smaller, worsted weight yarn, your project may be far too small. You will have to watch your gauge carefully. If you’re unsure, it will be best to use a heavy worsted or light bulky yarn if you’re not using Wool-Ease for your project
