Manzanita Tam
 
I am honored and excited to announce that the Incomparable Chrissy Gardiner, of Gardiner Yarn Works has designed a tam pattern exclusively for   T-SPOT and has called it
 
The Manzanita Tam
 
The pattern is available at T-SPOT only, and is a very simple two-color fair isle design.
The waves in the tam play an Escher-esque trick on you: is is white on blue, or blue on white?
It's both!
I am planning to have a Manzanita Tam knitting contest in the fall, so stay tuned.
 
This pattern is available as a pdf file, please e-mail us
