For the Firefly Swap (Round 9), I made this version of the Jayne Cobb hat, based on the pattern for the "Tam Topper" that can be found here: http://www.kraemeryarns.com/patterns/.

I was pretty pleased - it is a bit large (made with a nice chunky yarn), but it fits over long/big hair, which is (in my view) nice. I think my partner liked it, so...yay!

This is just the shape that I've been looking for a hat my niece wants me to knit. I've looked at the pattern that it was based on, but did you make some mods to cause it be less "tam" than the original?

Would love to know what changes you made as I think I could adapt it to the hat she has in mind. Thanks!

It's difficult for me to describe, because I sort of made it up as went along. Anyway, here goes:

I used a nice, chunky yarn. I started based on the pattern (you may want to adjust so that the circumference is nice; as I said, mine turned out rather big) and I kept knitting until it was about the pre-decrease length that I wanted. From there, I skipped to the decrease instructions in the pattern, and finished 'er up (and added the pompom!).

It's a little haphazard, I know - I hope that helps at least a little bit!  Smiley
