12 x 22-24 inches
Dominant Color:
wool yarns, carved shell charm

This striped and cabled tam is handknit from six wool yarns, in rich, warm shades to welcome back the spring sunshine. The colors range from a rich, sunny yellow and warm heathered apricot to neutral oatmeal shades and mulberry, heathered mahogany and brassy tan. The stitch is alternating narrow cables and columns, and it is very elastic; this is a hat you can tuck your hair up into, if you're so inclined. I've sewn a large (2" x 1.5"/5 cm x 4 cm) carved shell charm to the brim; I call it the "Fruit Bat" charm, as it looks to me like two friendly fruit bats enjoying a juicy snack. This tam will fit heads 22-24"/56-61 cm around, and measures 12"/30.5 across the crown when laid flat.

I used 100% wool yarns to make this hat; wool must be handwashed and air dried, or it will shrink and felt. To preserve the crisp shape of the crown, carefully insert a large dinner plate int the damp hat, and let it dry that way. You may also iron the tam while barely damp to help "set" its shape.

I accept paypal and personal checks, though your order won't ship (and special orders won't be made) until your check clears. Orders ship first class with delivery confirmation. The international shipping rate is a ballpark; if your purchase ships for less, I will refund you the difference, but I will not charge you more than the quoted amount. If you see a design you'd like in a different fiber/size/color, or would like it translated to a pair of gloves, scarf, or purse, please get in touch. I love to make special, one-of-a-kind garments... what do you fancy?
