Shells and Sea Glass
Now available as a Ravelry download and as part of my pattern collection Light and Shade. Pattern includes fully written instructions.
The Shells and Sea Glass Tam and Beret features a unique stitch that may be fiddly at first, but works up to form a beautiful fabric. A fingering weight yarn with high twist or a heavier weight yarn is recommended for fullness.
