Square Tam o'Shanter

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

18 stitches = 4 inches (10 cm) in Flat Knot Stitch on smaller hook 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:

Flat Knot Stitch

Row 1 Skip first chain, *single crochet in next stitch, double crochet in following stitch; repeat from * to last chain, single crochet in last chain.

Row 2 Chain 1, *single crochet into single crochet of previous row, double crochet into double crochet of previous row; repeat from * across, end single crochet in last single crochet.

Repeat Row 2 for pattern.

Cluster Stitch

Round 1 Ch 1, sc in first sc, ch 1, draw up a loop in each of next 3 sc, yarn over and draw through all 4 loops on hook, *ch 1, draw up a loop in same stitch as last cluster loop, draw up a loop in each of next 2 sc, yarn over and draw through all 4 loops on hook; repeat from *, join with slip stitch in top of beg sc.

Round 2 Ch 1, draw up a loop in top of first sc, [draw up a loop in ch1-space, draw up loop in next cluster, yarn over and draw through all 4 loops, *ch 1, draw up a loop in same stitch as last cluster loop, draw up a loop in ch1-space, draw up a loop in next cluster, yarn over and draw through all 4 loops; repeat from * around, join with slip stitch in top of first cluster. Ch 1.]

Round 3 Draw up a loop in first cluster, repeat between [ ] in Round 2.

Repeat Round 3 to desired size.


HAT

With smaller hook, ch 26. Work in Flat Knot Stitch, increase 1 stitch at beg and end of every row, until work measures 16 inches in width and 6½ inches in length. Work even for 5 inches; then decrease 1 stitch at beg and end of every row until 25 sc remain. Hat should now resemble an octagon in shape.

Gather diagonal edge and sew down. Trim with Flower.

Square Tam o'Shanter Reviewed by Louise Denegre on 2011-03-25 *****
I love this hat, and it looks adorable on. I added some crocheted "curls" that hang down from the side (like you make the ruffled crocheted scarves), and I get all sorts of compliments from the fashionistas in Manhattan.
