Second attempt at tam knitting

I read Mary Rowe's book on making tams in the spring. This is my second attempt using left over Shetland wool from other projects. Great fun.

Like your other one, this tam looks great. I'm intrigued that it is based around a 7-sided pattern, which isn't something I see very often.

I'm not familiar with Mary Rowe's book. I'm guessing it is the way increases/decreases are done that gives nice flat transitions from one set of colors to another, instead of rounded?

Simply gorgeous! I haven't made any tams but this one inspires...

If wishes and buts were clusters and nutes we'd all have a bowl of granola.

Very beautiful! I'm starting to get a collection of unfinished balls of Shetlands wool so I can look forward to knitting something nice like this. Do you wear tams or give them as gifts?

Thanks for all your kind comments. Yes, Celowin, it is the way the decreases are done that makes each one unique.

It looks great - I really like the pattern and the combination & hues of the colours. It's like a spotlight in the middle! Asplund
