Lacy Flower Tam Pattern: knitted
This lacy tam is knitted from the center out and only uses 1 skein of yarn.
This pattern is for a lacy knit hat is worked circularly from the stem out to the ribbing starting on double-pointed needles and then changing to circular needles. It is for an intermediate knitter, or adventurous advanced beginner. The pattern has both complete written instructions and a chart–either one can be followed to knit the hat and both types of knitters will be happy! It is worked on size 7 needles using my lovely Hand-dyed Superwash Merino Minis yarn, that is a DK-weight superwash wool.
Suited for Intermediates

This hat is named "the Fortune Teller Hat" because the top reminds me of an origami paper toy I played with as a child. You ask a question, open and close the fortune teller a certain number of times, then open a flap to reveal the answer.
