I used a pattern from Lion Brand, Gretchen's Easy Tam. It is a free pattern on the Lion Brand website. On I knits you tube channel, she knits the tam, which is very helpful. I found the pattern very easy to follow, it was a little challenging for me, as it is the first time I have knitted using double pointed needles (DPNs) and circular needle. Inside of using the Lion Brand yarn Heartland. I used Rowan's Pure Wool Worsted. The two colours, it cost me £16.50. I started it on Thursday 15th October, I didn't knit every day, but I finished it on Monday 26th October. I was able to wear it, even though I should block the tam, which I will do.
The tam was loose, which is a good thing as I have thick hair and it covers my ears. I will definitely buy the Heartland brand. I enjoyed knitting the tam.
