Image of Angora Tam
Sweet and soft, this tam fits a variety of sizes and requires just one ball of LB Collection Angora Merino. It's a wonderful quick project for the season and makes a great gift for the holidays.

Angora Tam

Lion Brand« LB Collection« Angora Merino

GAUGE:

7 pattern reps = 4 in. (10 cm)
Note: One pattern rep consists of 1 hdc and 1 ch-1 sp. 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

NOTES:

1. Ribbed Band is worked first, as a long strip. The ends of the Band are sl stitched together to form a ring.
2. The sides and crown (top) of the Tam are worked in continuous rnds from the Band upwards. Do not join rnds and do not turn. The first rnd of the Tam is worked into the ends of rows across one long side edge of the Band.
3. Tam is shaped by first increasing and then decreasing sts.
