This was supposed to be my project for the Knit-Along with the Amiras but I was impatient and cast on a bit sooner. The pattern is so addictive and easy and I was done with it in no time. This is Ysolda Teague’s Snapdragon Tam from her booklet Whimsical Little Knits 2. It was Charmaine’s gorgeous blue-grey tam which inspired me to finally knit one of Ysolda’s berets.
The white bits on the tam is caused by sloppy dyeing by yours truly. Louise said it looked like I was sprinkled with snow! How sweet.
Oh and I can’t even begin to tell you how much a fan of dinner-plate blocking I have become!
I think I will knit this again, with a different coloured yarn, without any white spots. I’ll be needing lots of hats where I’m going.
