The Everglade Tam is a beret/tam styled hat; the motif is a cable which looks like a tree and can be worn either to the front or the side. It is designed to be worn big and baggy for a boho slouchy look. It has a small ribbed band which can be made bigger and you could add a pom pom to the top for added detail if preferred.
Apart from the single motif, the rest of the hat is knitted in stocking stitch in the round.
The sample Tam / Beret was knitted in King Cole Glitz DK (97% polyester, 3% nylon) in colourway Savoy 371. The large size takes about 60g of yarn. You could substitute any DK yarn that you like, use up some stash or a luxury skein that you’ve been saving just for you.
This pattern is produced with the invaluable help of my test knitters and my tech editor – Tabitha Thomas Studios
The Everglade Tam is knitted with dk weight yarn. You could substitute any DK weight yarn. I used 3.5mm and 4mm needles and King Cole Baby Glitz DK. The Tam / Beret pattern has instructions for three sizes from 17 to 22 inch brim to fit a broad range of heads and hair volume. The design features a reverse stocking stitch background on the cable panel, to show off the cable stitches and let them shine.
