7 Sizes for Head Circumference: 13 - 19” / 33 - 48cm

This perky tam, enriched by a twining lace stitch, is quite easy to knit. It is worked in the round using a DK-weight organic cotton/wool blend.

This sweet little hat will create a bright spot on those blustery days bringing fuchsia blooms to chase away the chilly weather.

The Bamboo Stitch band offers an additional textural element providing a band with give and take without using ribbing.

This pattern is knit from the top down (centre out) in the round, using double pointed needles / circular needle. There are no seams and only 2 ends to weave in!

Directions are written out. No charts.
