When the snow melts in the Sierra mountains of California, the John Muir Trail becomes like a maiden blushing with the sweetest colors in nature, and from the frozen snow emerges delicate beauty to inspire this design. A classic springtime tam, with garlands of alpine wildflower motifs encircling a single wound-yarn button.
A classic spring tam & toque, knit in-the-round in a concentric-decreased design. Shetland yarn is ideal, for its fusing quality of the long floats to back of the colorwork. Experience in stranding suggested for managing up to 3 strands in knitting, a few rounds with long floats. Pattern uses original colorwork charts. A single wound-yarn (Dorset style) button for flourish. Duplicate stitching on the flowers at finish.
Suggested yarn: Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift, Jamieson & Smith 2 Ply Jumper Weight, Elemental Affects Natural Shetland Fingering, Harrisville Designs Shetland, or any 100% pure wool fingering yarn
