My Tam

I just finished knitting up a tam....one of the Three Tams pattern. I knit Tam C, because I liked that pattern the best.  It was a fairly easy knit, once I got reacquainted with holding 2 strands of yarn.  The main color of my hat (the blue) is Cestari Traditional Collection wool yarn, and the contrasting color is Noro Kureyon. 

I ended up tinking (taking stitches out...tink spells "knit" backwards) back and re-knitting the same several rows several times, which got to be a chore.  Turns out, the pattern did not say to move the marker before each decrease row, but luckily many people left notes on the Ravelry page explaining the issue. 

I love how it turned out, and I think I'll enter it in our county fair coming up in August!

It's GORGEOUS!!!! Fantastic job! I know tinking is really annoying but it sure was worth it because it looks so pretty! Definitely enter it in the fair!
