Lingonberry Tam is a pattern suitable for advanced beginner crocheters, it has an easy pattern repeat and simple shaping. Working with the finer yarn can be a little challenging if you have never done it before.
This uniquely shaped tam with its berry like pattern on the band is fun to wear and just as much fun to make. It can be made with or without the small visor and buttons for two completely different looks.Lingonberry Tam also looks wonderful when using a variegated yarn for the berry section or when making the entire hat using a skein of self striping yarn.
Lingonberry Tam is available to fit head size:
Small (S): 20" 50cm
Medium (M): 22" 55cm
Large (L): 24" 60cm
All sizes: 8" 20cm
It uses only 250yds/220mts - 350yds/300mts yarn, I used a sample pack of Tirchonaill which is enough yarn to make 1 hat, if you buy 2 sample packs there is enough yarn to make both the Lingonberry Hat and the Tam. Tirchonaill sample packs are available from Spinyarnweavetales here https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/SpinYarnWeaveTales?section_id=13675454&ref=shopsection_leftnav_4
Lingonberry Tam is available in an E-book along with Lingonberry Hat. The E-book is available at the discounted cost of $8.00 for both patterns. https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/187464264/2-crochet-patterns-lingonberry-tam-hat?
