Superfast Tam O'Shanter Hat
Here is a simple Superfast Tam O'Shanter knitting pattern. Its made using my unique Superfast method which is 4 times faster than normal knitting and so only takes a few hours to make. the knitting pattern provides full instructions for 4 sizes so can be made for anyone from babies to adults with head circumference from 16 - 24 inches.
I chose the fantastic undyed Araucania Limari yarn which is 70% merino,20% alpaca and 10% silk but it can be made in any superchunky yarn with similar guage on 8 mm needles. Make one of these right now and get back to your Scottish roots. if it takes longer than 3 hours to make (including the pom- pom)then you are just not trying!!!!!
Sample is shown in Araucania Limari (now discontinued). A suggested substitute is shown below.
