This is my first, 110% successful, non-square project. It's....a big, slouchy tam! I've been wanting one so badly, so I whipped this up instead of spending $30+ on one at a fancy store. And now, pictures!









If for some reason the pictures don't work, just let me know.

PS: I used http://www.chezcrochet.com/page60.html as the basis for the tam. I followed very closely in the beginnning, but skipped about half of the end and made up my own decreases. It's a wonderful pattern though, and I highly reccomend it.

It fits my head pretty much perfectly and stays up fine, but for extra support I use two bobby pins in the front.

This is SO cute! I am just learning to crochet, and I keep getting ahead of myself by thinking that I can just go off and start crocheting exactly what I want without a pattern!

The thing is, this is exactly the type of hat that I've been wanting to make, and basically hats are the main reason I want to learn to crochet, more or less...

So, now that I've found the pattern for what I'm looking for, I suppose it's time to learn to read patterns!

Haha... thanks for the inspiration!
