The Bestival Tam is funky, twisty, colourful and textured. Perfect for the cooler evenings of the summer festivals. Crocheted in varying weights of yarn and colours it is a great way to use up some of those oddments you just cannot bear to throw away. Worked in the round without seams and completely reversible, so you get two different looks for the price of one.
Crocheted in the round so no seaming. The Tam is started by making the centre motif and continuing in increasing circles to the outer edge, decreases are then made to shape the piece and finally the brim is worked to the desired fit.
This pattern is recommended for the confident beginner, who would like to try something a little more ambitious but a still relatively small project. It would be helpful to familiarise yourself with the FPHDC stitch before beginning.
Gauge not critical...sizing can be easily adjusted to fit.
I am a self taught designer with many (many!) years of knitting and crocheting experience. Extremely keen to promote the beautiful island where I am lucky enough to reside and absolutely LOVE all things textural.
Have only just begun my journey into the world of commerce but lots more patterns are in development and I really look forward to sharing them with you soon.
