Mica Tam: An Adorn Anew Bonus Pattern
Designed to coordinate with my Mica Mitts, Mica Tam combines the twisted rib stitch with a beaded variation of feather and fan. The tam is worked from the brim to the top and is designed with just the right amount of “slouch”! I used 200 yards of Anzula Squishy in Bark, another one of my favorite cashmere/merino/nylon sock yarns... have you all figured out that I have a STASH of MCN sock yarn by now? I've a video tutorial for working with the beads... it's easy!
Right after I released the Mica Mitts one of my Ravelry group members JanElinRN asked if I would design a tam to match... ignoring that I was in the middle of 5 other deadlines I decided her idea was brilliant and cast right on! I am THRILLED with how this tam came out!
In fact, my girl, who never wears my designs stole it the day it was dry to wear for her school pics! I spent the whole day a wee bit nervous as I hadn't taken my photos yet, and I know what happens at recess! (Have you ever played steal the hat when you had a crush on someone?)
I've already got one cast on for her in Fibre Company's Canopy Fingering in Obsidian, with some lovely Emerald Green beads... what do you think you'll knit one with?
The Mica Tam pattern is available both individually and as part of Adorn Anew... you choose.
