pattern: #31 Bobbled Tam by Cathy Carron
yarn: Madelinetosh Sport in colour Posy
Since my first attempt for a hat this Christmas didn't work out, I had to make another, especially with these infernal temperatures outside. Bobbled tam appeared in Vogue Knitting a couple of years ago in bright avocado green, crunchy yarn. The pattern was really easy, though charts would have made it even better (I'm on team Charts, are you on team Written Instructions?). As the original pattern was for DK, I knitted size L with my Tosh sport... Lovely, lovely yarn. I think I'm going crazy with Tosh. Such wonderful, gentle colours and textures.
Sorry about the quality of the pics, I'm never home when the sun is up so I have to make do with these grainy, fuzzy pictures. Don't look close and just squint your eyes, and voíla! Instant prettyfication!
