Downtown Abbey Daisy Inspired Tam in Tangerine

Did you already have a chance to check out my Downton Abbey Brown Daisy tam? I really like it. But I didn't think it was enough like Daisy's tam. I made another pass at it and made it slouchier. I think it's much better this time.

It's definitely big enough to hold all of my hair in it if I wanted to. The bright color is fun (but probably much too bright for Daisy!). I like that this can be worn in spring and maybe into summer as the cotton won't retain heat in the same way as acrylic does.

Here is how it's done:

I used a cotton yarn such as Lily Sugar and Cream and an H hook. I did not measure gauge.

Begin with a magic ring and chain 3. Work 9 DC into ring. Connect ring with a sl at top of chain 3. (10 stitches)
Chain 3. DC into same stitch opening. Work 2 DC into next stitch. Repeat all the way around and connect round with sl at top of chain 3. (20 stitches)
Chain 3. Work 2 DC into next space then 1 DC into next space (alternating 2 DC and 1 DC). Repeat all the way around and connect ring with a sl at top of chain 3. (30 stitches)
Chain 3. Work 1 DC into next space and 2 DC into next space. 1 DC into next 2 spaces and 2 DC into next space (alternating a 2 DC for every two 1 DC).  Close ring with a sl at top of chain 3. (40 stitches)
Chain 3. Work 1 DC into next two spaces and 2 DC into next space. 1 DC into next 3 spaces and 2 DC into next space (alternating a 2 DC for every three 1 DC).  Close ring with a sl at top of chain 3.   (50 stitches)
Chain 3. Work 1 DC into next three space and 2 DC into next space. 1 DC into next 4 spaces and 2 DC into next space (alternating a 2 DC for every four 1 DC).  Close ring with a sl at top of chain 3.   (60 stitches)
Chain 3. Work 1 DC into next four space and 2 DC into next space. 1 DC into next 5 spaces and 2 DC into next space (alternating a 2 DC for every five 1 DC).  Close ring with a sl at top of chain 3.   (70 stitches)
Chain 3. Work 1 DC into next five space and 2 DC into next space. 1 DC into next 6 spaces and 2 DC into next space (alternating a 2 DC for every six 1 DC).  Close ring with a sl at top of chain 3.   (80 stitches)
Chain 3. Work 1 DC into each space. Close ring with a sl at top of chain 3. (80 stitches)
Repeat next 5 rows.
Chain 3. Work 1 DC into next 4 spaces. DC next two stitches tog. Work 1 DC next 5 stitches and DC next two stitches tog. Repeat all the way around. Close ring with a sl at top of chain 3. (60 stitches)
Chain 3. Work 1 DC into next stitch. DC next two stitches tog. Work 1 DC into next 2 stitches and DC next two stitches together. Repeat all the way around. Close ring with a sl at top of chain 3. (53 stitches)
Chain 3. Work one DC into each stitch. Close ring with a sl at top of chain 3 (53 stitches)
Chain 2. SC into each stitch. Close ring with a sl at top of chain 2. (53 stitches) Finish off and weave end in.

  3. I love this pattern. It works up fast and easy. The only error that I found was probably a typo - I got 68 stitches on row 15, counting the magic circle row, (the dc tog, 5 dc row 4th from the bottom) instead of 60. Then on the next row, things were right again at 53 stitches. Thank you for sharing this. I am making Crochet for Cancer hats and thought this was a sweet and jaunty one!
