Knitting a Scottish Tam

exc-61ab8d057618235926225612

A friend of mine ask if I could knit him a Scottish Tam. Seems easy enough, and I’ve never done a felted project, so why not.

I found a decent pattern on Ravelry close to what he was looking for, and knit up a sample.

The sample turned out ok. I need to change a couple of things for fit and size requirements, but otherwise it should work.

To really get the final right, I’ve made up some swatches of the yarn. The color is called Turtle. It’s a nice yellow olive and will look great.

One we felt the swatches, I’ll be able to settle on a gauge for the hat and make the needed adjustments.
