A cute, slouchy tam in three sizes (Small/Medium/Large), with a wide textured brim that reads like a “plaid” when knit in variegated yarn. Its width ensures a snug fit to frame the face and the button closure at one side completes the kilt effect. The brim is knit back and forth in rows, then joined to work the upper body in the round to create a soft slouchy shape.

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.
