Rosalie Tam

Rosalie tam started out of a very selfish need, and as usual a surplus of stash yarn! Here you can see me, for one of the only times in my life where I chose to model myself (I dearly hate the very thought of it!).

For this hat, I wanted a vintage feel, something I could use to add a 'je ne sais quoi' to my Fall and Winter outfits.

In no time, I sorted trough my favorite old stitchionary and found a lovely lace, intended to be used in layettes. I struggled a bit with in until I had a stroke of genius (well, maybe not genius, but I solved my problem anyway!), removed some rows, changed some decreases and ended up with a lovely 'in the round only' lace pattern.

The result is a very, very, easy lace tam, with a pretty rolled brim and a unique lace pattern. It is made out of a little bit of sport weight wool, here Knitpicks Andean Treasure in the lovely colorway 'Meringue Heather'.
