11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Mermaid Slouchy Tam (with pattern!!) on: November 02, 2009 01:15:52 PM
LOVE this hat!!! I have knit a few tam-like hats before, but never one with 2 colors. I'm trying to learn how to do that, and I was wondering if you used fair-isle/stranding, or intarsia?? Cheesy Thanks so much!

neither! it's a mosaic-type stitch. you only knit with one color each row, and you use slipped stitches to create the pattern.

I have a question, what do you mean by "chain multiple of 13"?? I dont think I'm understanding it correctly...... is it just ch 13 then just make it however long you want it to be??

It means chain a multiple of 13 stitches.
13, 26, 39, 52, 65, 78, etc...those are all multiples of 13 (13 multiplied by any other number).

Awesome job!  I love the colors you used for the hat and the scarf - also thanks for sharing your pattern for the scarf! I already had the hat saved in my favorites in Ravelry and after you posted this, I'm excited to get started making it!  I'm making this hat for my cousin I think she will LOVE it!

The starghan is very cute too! I love the colors you used - reminds me of Bubble Yum watermelon bubble gum!  Your pup is sooooo adorable!

Question: what size of hook did you use for your scarf?

Thanks! The scarf and hat were both made using an H hook. I'm a knitter first so my stash of hooks is really limited.  Wink

...WOW! That's adorable!

I'm downloading it as i'm typing! And yr scarf is to die for! Please tell me there is a pattern so i can make one for myself!

ohh.. and what yarn did you use?!?

I used some Lion Brand Wool-ease for the hat and scarf. The scarf was just your basic zig-zag stitch. They all seem to be slightly different but this is the stitch pattern I followed:

Chain multiple of 13

Row 1: sk 3 ch, 4dc in next 4 ch, 3 dc in next ch, 5 dc in next 5 ch, *sk 2 ch, 5 dc in next 5 ch*, ch 3, turn
Row 2: sk 1 st, 4dc in next 4 sts, 3 dc in next st, 5 dc in next 5 sts, *sk 2 sts, 5 dc in next 5 sts, 3 dc in next st, 5 dc in next 5 sts*, on the last multiple end with 4 dc, sk 1 dc, 1 dc in turning ch, ch 3, turn
(Repeat row 2 till you get the length you want)

I used 6s with fingering weight yarn.  Smiley

Oh no! I am doomed whenever you make a new hat for I will be forced to make one as well. I am currently working on your Mermaid Tam and when I am done with that I will absolutely have to teach my self how to crochet and make this one  Cheesy.

I am in love with it! Great job!

That's so awesome! Definitely post your finished hat on ravelry, I love looking at everyone's adaptation of the pattern!

Great projects!
What kind of camera do you use?

Those were taken with my Sony Cybershot DSC-W200. It's a 12.1 megapixel point-and-shoot sorta deal, but my baby is my Nikon D60.

Thanks for pointing out this hat pattern.  It is super-cute!  It looks a little more complicated than stuff I've tried, but I'm going to give it a go.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the colors you used, it looks so great with your scarf.



Thanks! This pattern was a little intimidating and it looks really complicated but it's incredibly easy and very well written! I'm a knitter first and my crochet skills are really lacking but as long as you can single crochet, double crochet, increase, and decrease this pattern is a breeze! The only new thing I had to learn was FPDC (front post double crochet) but it's explained really well in the pattern. Definitely give it a try!

Love love LOVE the scarf. Do you have a pattern link?

This is the basic stitch pattern I used. Thanks!  Wink
