Okay, I had seen some really cool and original free hand projects and original drafted patterns, so I decided to give it a try, something simple.  Just a simple tam/snood (not sure what the appropriate word would be for this). 

Comments are welcome, along with constructive critisisms!  Thanks for taking a look.  If anyone wants the pattern, let me know, and I'll post it.

Very nice!  I have been wanting to make one for myself for the medieval re-enactment...the storebought ones are terrible.  I look forward to the pattern!

The pattern for this tam is pretty simple.  I used a size K hook with Red Heart WW yarn.  Not sure of the gauge, but my tension was pretty loose.  Here goes:

Start with chain 4, form a ring.

1. 10 dc in ring, join.

2. *2dc in each dc*, repeat around,  join.

3. *1 dc in next dc, 2 dc next dc* repeat around, join.

4. *1 dc in next 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc* repeat around, join.

5. *1 dc in next 3 dc, 2 dc in next dc* repeat around, join.

6. *1 dc in next 4 dc, 2 dc in next dc* repeat around, join.

7. *1dc in next 5 dc, 2 dc in next dc* repeat around, join.

8. *1 dc in next 6 dc, 2 dc in next dc* repeat around, join.

9. *1 dc each dc around* repeat around join.  x 9 rounds

10. *1 dc in next 4 dc, decdc in st's 5 & 6* repeat around, join.

11. *1 dc in next 3 dc, decdc in st's 4 & 5* repeat around, join.

12. * 1 dc in next 2 dc, decdc in st's 3 & 4* repeat around, join.

13. *1 dc in each dc* repeat around.* repeat around, join.  x2 rounds. sew in tails.

Now, a note considering that this has to fit snugly around your head...make sure you try on your tam as you come to decreases.  Everyone's head is a different size, so you may need more or less descreases.  You can make your tam as long you want, just add rounds at line 9!  It's a pretty flexible pattern depending on how big, long, or slouchy you want your tam.  Good Luck to everyone, and show me pictures of your projects, I'd l ove to see them in different color combinations!  thanks for looking!
