Everyone appreciates a festive, seasonal accessory and this lacy tam in three sizes (S/M/L) will add a pretty touch from November through February to keep the compliments coming. Knit in the round from brim to peak in a mix of simple to work pine tree and star motifs, the results belie its simplicity. With alternate rows all in knit, this project is a good traveler that is easily worked in multiples to tuck away as gifts.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
