When I started on Ravelry, some of the very first patterns that I fell in love with came from Brooklyn Tweed and Jared Flood. The patterns almost look so elegant and classic while still having the knitting complexities that challenges a knitter. The Beaumont tam is no different, but I finished it and I love it.
In order to maintain the proper color working, I had to place a stitch marker after the first pattern repeat and check the pattern as I knitted around. I didn’t have any issues (unless you count my second guessing my color choices) and it knitted up quicker than I expected.
At the blocking stage, I was worried that I had accidentally knitted the tam too big. I couldn’t believe that a 10 inch plate actual fit inside it, but after it was all done, it was perfect.
