I LOVED KNITTING THIS !!!! This tam was a free pattern I found on Ravelry.com , here. When I saw that sweet wall-paper pattern, it became instantly a must-do for me who wanted to learn how motifs can seamlessly work in an all-around pattern, up and down. I really enjoyed it !
I still have yet to add a beret loop at the top in the middle, as I really think it needs something to finish it off, don’t you? When and if I ever give it to someone, I will put on a more personalized accent.
The yarn I used was Knit Picks “Palette” that I had in my stash, which is a fingering weight yarn , and thus it knit up so fine that it is a very small tam, say for a child-sized head. I think the pattern followed needs a sport weight or DK to fit an adult sized head . Oops. I just will keep it in my cedar chest until the right ‘child’ happens to come by.
