The Southerly Tam Pattern
Here it is The Southerly Tam Knitting Pattern! I just listed this in my etsy shop. If your looking for a new take on an old hat check this one out. I suggest it for intermediate to experienced knitters. This tam also knits up pretty quick and is perfect for last minuet gifts.
I suggest using a yarn that has good stitch definition or a semi solid hand painted so that you can see the movement in the stitch pattern.
I designed this tam while I was in Australia which was interesting because It was sweltering when I was working on this hat. So the only time I was really able to comfortably knit was at knit when the "southerly" would blow up the coast bringing a cool breeze to relieve the hot day. I have yet had a day since I finished this tam where I could wear it out, but with fall moving in I'm hoping I can show off my new tam shortly. Simon is getting really good at taking my photos for me. We did the photo shoot while we were in Oz at one of our favorite beaches. It was right around sunset so we got some great shots.
