GAUGE:

20 sts + 27 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

kfb (knit into front and back) Knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st – 1 st increased.
sk2p Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch over – 2 sts decreased. To work last sk2p in a rnd, slip last 2 sts of rnd, k first st of the next rnd, pass both slipped stitches over.
ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them together.

NOTES:

1. Carry color not in use across wrong side of work.
2. Tam is worked in the round, so every rnd of Chart 1 and Chart 2 should be read from right to left.
3. Decreases for top of Tam (crown) are worked following Chart 2.



TAM
With A, cast on 100 sts. Divide sts onto 4 needles (25 sts per needle). Place marker for beg of rnd and join, being careful not to twist sts.
Rnd 1: *With A, k2; with B, p2; rep from * around.
Rep Rnd 1 until piece measures 1 1/2 in. (4 cm).
Next Rnd: With A only, * k1, kfb, k2, kfb; rep from * around – 140 sts at end of rnd.
Change to St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd)
Beg with Rnd 1, work 4-st rep of Chart 1 around.
Continue in St st worked in the rnd and Chart 1 as established until Rnd 16 has been completed, then rep Rnds 1-14 once more.
Shape Crown
Next Rnd: Beg with Rnd 1, work 20-st rep of Chart 2 seven times around.
Continue as established until Rnd 21 of Chart 2 has been completed – 14 sts.
Next Rnd:With C only, [ssk] 7 times – 7 sts at end of rnd. Cut yarn, leaving a long tail. Thread tail through rem sts, pull tightly tog, and fasten off.

FINISHING
Weave in ends. Stretch Tam over a dinner plate and spray lightly with water to block. Allow to dry.

Pemberly Tam Reviewed by Judy Riester on 2014-06-14 ****
This tam is adorable. A little tricky doing the 2nd chart, but it finally came out beautiful. My grand daughter just loves it.
