Snapdragon Tam

A cosy tam featuring an allover lattice cable pattern, with petals (or perhaps they’re little flames) that grow organically in the centre of each open section. Whether worked in a bright glowing colour or a cool neutral Snapdragon is a fun pattern that’s sure to cheer up dreary winter days and would make a perfect gift.

    Worked in the round. Although the instructions look lengthy and the chart may seem a little daunting Snapdragon is surprisingly simple to knit, and of course you can work from either written or charted directions.

    SIZING

    s[m, l] - to fit size - 18[22, 26]" / 46[56, 66]cm
    Finished circumference 16[20, 24]" / 41[51, 61]cm.
