About the pattern

This slouchy tam features a deceptively simple textured pattern forming into a snowflake-like shape on the crown. Your tam will be crisp and perky when knit with a springy sock yarn, smooth and slouchy in a soft luxury blend. From sleek,
modern city-wear in white or red to a rustic feel when combined with fair-isle vests and chunky scarf and mittens in matching fall colors, this design can convey many moods. You can also change the look by choosing not to block or blocking over a round object (like a balloon) to get either a beanie or a slouchy hat instead of a tam.

Don’t worry if the ribbing seems small for your head circumference — it’s supposed to fit really snug to provide stability for the soft and slouchy body and crown of the tam.
