Learn a new stitch and make a unique tam for your gorgeous dreads! This pattern uses DK weight yarn which is lightweight and perfect for warmer weather. If you'd like a heavier tam, than you can substitute with Aran weight yarn. The tam will be slightly bigger, and the gauge will be off just a bit, but since this tam is adjustable it won't make much of a difference. Tam will fit dreads up to a little longer than shoulder length. If you'd like to adjust the length of your tam, do so on rows 8-9, 12-14 and/or 17-18 to make it easier. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Double Crochet - DC 2-DC TOG DC SPIKE STITCH SC SPIKE STITCH GAUGE 6 dc's/tr's and 3 rows = 2 inches. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 12 inches from the top of the hat to the brim edge. 14 inches across the widest part of the hat. 24 inches around the rim of the hat. *Hat will be adjustable after adding the drawstring, so will fit any size head.
