The inspiration for this tam was taken from stained glass rose windows: a breath-taking and stunning architectural feature in buildings both ancient and modern.
This colourwork tam has been designed to work with our magically marled Chimera yarn and a complementing solid. The pattern is charted and written so you have both options.
