I designed the colour pattern for this...
I call it "Joanne's Tiny Tam" because I didn't increase so broadly -- just enough that she can tuck her hair up under when it gets cold. She lives in the Quad Cities in Rock Island, Illinois, and even though I've only been there once, I know it can get cold in the winter.
She loves red.
So, when I was on this kick for making hats for CapsForKids, I decided to get this one done, too, while the energy was still there.
