Snapdragon Tam PDF
This pattern is a downloadable PDF file.
A cosy tam featuring an allover lattice cable pattern, with petals (or perhaps they’re little flames) that grow organically in the centre of each open section. Although the instructions look lengthy and the chart may seem a little daunting Snapdragon is surprisingly simple to knit, and of course you can work from either written or charted directions. Whether worked in a bright glowing colour or a cool neutral Snapdragon is a fun pattern that’s sure to cheer up dreary winter days and would make a perfect gift. Complete a cute matching set by making the Snapdragon Flip Flops Mittens.

For a looser, slouchier hat, work a larger size which may make band too loose. This can be counteracted by working it on smaller needles or threading elastic through at the end.
