Sandie designed thisScottish Highlands Tamto be a replica of the tams as worn by the characters of the TV show “Outlander”. It is a full “Scottish Bonnet” style tam that can be worn by men or women. This style of Tam was customarily worn by 17th & 18th century Scots.
The tam comes in 3 sizes M, L & XL, but also info on how to size up and down one more size if needed.
The tam is knit on circular needles (using the magic loop method), and then welt felted (fulled). I’ve included extra photos in the pattern to show how things should look as you go along, as well as a tutorial with photos on how to felt and shape your tam after it is knit.
You’ll need 2-2.5 skeins of a 100% wool yarn. We recommend Cascade 220 as it felts beautifully.
