Looking forward to spring and flowers, I wanted to create a lightweight tam/beret style hat for my granddaughter and the crisp cool days ahead when a head covering is still needed. The great thing about this hat is the snug fitting brim and how much it stretches. I tried the hats on three granddaughters - 6 mo., 3 yrs, and 5 yrs and they fit each of them without adjustments. The I-cord can be tied tighter or looser accordingly. Caron Simply Soft 100% acrylic yarn was used for the hats pictured. It's extremely soft yarn and machine washable. Use your judgment as far as buttons are concerned and the age of the child wearing the hat. You may certainly sell your finished projects from this pattern; please give me credit for the pattern!

I have been knitting for 60 years and since the grandchildren arrived have been knitting daily. I decided I wanted to create easy predominantly seamless knitting projects because I love knitting in the round, and more important I hate to sew pieces together! I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should you come across a flaw or something that doesn't seem quite right in the instructions, I hope you will contact me! Contact me at with any of your questions or concerns. You are free to sell your finished items, but please give me credit for the pattern. Thank you and happy knitting!
