I think a tam is my favorite kind of hat. Everyone looks good in a tam, and it should be a wardrobe staple in autumn and winter. Sirona is a traditional shetland tam with a delicate and beautiful patterning. It uses only two colors which makes it easy to knit and leaves very few ends to weave in. So, grab your yarn and needles, and make yourself a tam to keep your ears warm in the winter cold.

This tam requires about 160 yd/145m in MC and 110 yd/100 m in CC.

This tam will fit a head with a circumference of 21-22 inches/54-56 cm. Tam diameter is 11 inches/28 cm. The size can easily be adjusted by adjusting the gauge.
