View Full Version : simple tam with worsted, circular needles

01-04-2009, 08:48 PM
Hello everyone,

I am looking for a pattern for a simple tam or not-very-slouchy beret, knitted on a circular needle. I would like to do this with worsted wool, bottom up.

Thanks for your help!

Okay, more of a Newsboy cap (http://members.aol.com/lffunt/guycap.html) than a Tam, but not slouchy at all and has a brim.

I've made a few of them, both using a front post DC (shows as a rib on the outside/RS) and using a back post DC (rib on the inside/WS).

Use the hook, Kirin. :)
