Chunky Shaded Tam

(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Chunky Shaded Tam
Chunky Shaded Tam
Chunky Shaded Tam

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • single crochet
  • half double crochet
  • double crochet
  • decreases (half and double)
  • hand sewing buttons

Pattern Description:

Loved the look of the over sized slouchy/tam, but wanted to add a little charm to it. The wide brim and buttoned band were just the thing!
This hat works up quite quickly and fairly easy for even a beginner with some knowledge of basic stitches and decreases.
I recommend Lion Brand Hometown USA, but most super bulky yarns (6 weight) would work.


At the end of your hat's last increase row, your diameter should measure 9 inches.

  • Loose (one size fits most)


  • Super bulky yarn (161 yds)
  • N hook

You Will Also Need:

  • Needle and thread
  • 2 buttons

Suggested yarn:

161 yards of Bulky weight

Lion Brand Hometown USA
