This intricate lace and cables tam was one of the patterns from the 2011 Mystery KAL. Reminiscent of feathers or flames, the cables work their way through the lace and integrate in the crown shaping.

Pattern is fully charted and is provided in 3 sizes. This tam could easily be made slouchier, however, you will likely need more yarn.
