PATTERN DESCRIPTION FINISHED SIZES
The Espalier Tam is festooned with architectural twisted stitches akin to the source of its name, the garden practice used to train trees, shrubs, or woody vines into a sometimes flat, decorative configuration not normally formed by nature itself. Knit this tam in the round if you love Bavarian stitch patterns with just a touch of lace. It’s a member of the Homegrown Hat Collection, naturally.
