Victory is a nod to 1940s Fair Isle tams. Cleverly tucked in among traditional motifs, you’ll find the V sign and Morse code used in the WWII-era “V for Victory” campaign.

  • Cornflower Blue (Main Color)
  • Nile Green
  • Alabaster

If substituting yarn, you will need less than 50g / 174yd of 5 colors of fingering weight / 4 ply.

Size
One size. Will stretch to comfortably fit head circumferences up to 24” / 61cm. If a slightly larger or smaller size is desired, simply go up or down a needle size from needles that give you correct gauge.

Construction
Tam / beret is worked in the round in stranded stockinette, with centered double deceases (explained in the pattern) to shape the crown.
