Croi means 'heart' in Gaelic, and the knotted cables around this hat look rather like hearts. Depending on the yarn weight used, this tam can be knit in a smaller version (grey sample) or a larger version (brown sample). Both are sized to fit an adult head. Thanks to Julie for modeling the tam for me!
The smaller tam requires about 170 yds of a fingering-to-sport weight yarn, and has a top diameter of 9.5". The larger one requires about 145 yds of a DK-to-worsted yarn, and has a top diameter of 10.5".
Requires a set of dpns in 2.75mm (US2) or 3.25mm (US3), stitch marker, and 2 cable needles or stitch holders.
The pattern can be downloaded by the purchaser as a PDF file.
