Designs by Romi Poinsettiea Tam & Cuffs PDF
The Poinsettia Tam from Designs by Romi is a fast and light lace tam that - surprise! - comes in a lined version as well! The lining, knit from mohair/silk, is gathered for extra warmth. Some knitters have even been wearing them inside out for a more dramatic look. The lace pattern is both written and charted. Bonus in this pattern is a pair of lacy cuffs to match the hat. Lined or not, they look lovely with your winter jacket!
