Tam-O-Shanter

This is an easy tam pattern and can be made up quickly in 2 sizes.
I made this on up in Kelly green with a white pom-pom on the top.
Fun to make, fun to wear.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Materials you will need:

4oz skein knitting worsted.

Set of 4 double pointed knitting needles, you will need the 10 inch long ones for this pattern.

Size 10 needles for small size tam -- 10 1/2 for larger size.

Approx. 24 inches white yarn for pom-pom.
 
Abbreviations:
St = stitch
K 2 tog = knit 2 stitches from left hand needle as 1 on right hand needle
Inc 1 = knit in back of stitch on left hand needle, then in front of same stitch
creating 2 stitches on right hand needle, thus increasing 1stitch.
 
Cast on 66 sts, 22 on each of 3 needles.
 
TIP: Leave a small tail of yarn after casting on. This will serve as a reminder of the end of one row
and the beginning of another.
 
Begin by working in k 1, p 1 this is the ribbing and serves as the hatband.
Continue working around till work measures 1 inch ending at the tail.
 
Row 1 of hat:  K 1 round
