Progress Report: Meringue Tam development

This project started out as a quest to make a Tam worthy of a Christmas present for my mom. We both have short hair and it takes a nice fluffy winter hat to look cute. I took one element from the last two hats I made and integrated it into a generously bulky tam increase to even it out. The result is this sweet hat that reminded me of a meringue cookie, even to the way the decorative elements come together at the top. After a few adjustments I refined the decreases to be as unobtrusive as possible. One more test hat and I’ll be releasing this pattern for everyone to enjoy!

The first hat pictured was created with Cascade Yarns Eco Duo – a deliciously soft and beautifully undyed combo of alpaca and merino. I’ll be ordering more of this in the future.
