it's been more than a year since a friend asked me to make him a tam with a bill, & i finally did it! Grin  the day he came over i had just seen patchworkarmy's version (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22332.0) & thought it would be fun to make.

since it took so long & i had plenty of yarn, i threw in a matching scarf & a wrist cuff.  i made the wrist cuff after i took the pics, but it's made just like the scarf only sans tassels & much shorter, lol.

I used a mix of SC, HDC, & DC to get the stripes.  i think i used a K hook, but it might have been an H.  the yarns were Red Heart Aran Fleck, Caron Perfect Match Espresso, & some unlabeled camo yarn a friend gave me after frogging a scarf he gave up on.  the camo was a mid-project decision, but i love how it turned out.  i think it's what really makes it imho.  keeps it from being ho-hum.  he only told me he like earthy colors & wanted the hat big.  what's earthier than camoflage?

here's the hat & scarf (i stuffed the hat to show it's size when i sent him pics.)


here's a detail shot of the brim & band


aerial view of the hat - 12in diameter laid flat


& a detail of the scarf - 92in long! (not incl the masculine tassels)

the scarf was done with DC starting in the middle & working the fleck on either side, then trimming it with the camo in SC.  oh, i started & ended both fleck rows with HDC to round it out.

hope you like it! Cheesy

It's so great to see more folks taking off with tam designs from that old patchwork army thread!  you did a nice job with yours, I really like how you shaped the crown.
