Hello everyone! I hope you’re enjoying the first few days of the New Year.
I am delighted to announce that this is the first behind-the-scenes post of an item for sale, so without further ado, the Black and White Fair Isle Tam!
After the first few rows of fair isle, I was beginning to see what the two colours would look like together….
Then it started taking shape…
This is the gorgeous tam on the inside…
Complete! Or almost…
Pre-blocking it was too puffy for my liking…
But some water and a dinner plate really did the trick!
Pre- and Post-blocking:
Not bad for a first go, eh?
My mind is already whirring with new colour options, including gradient yarns!
And there you have it. That is the story behind the Black and White Fair Isle Tam.
*As an important note, this is not one of my original patterns. It is from Lion Brand Yarn, http://www.lionbrand.com/
