Vintage Crochet Baby's Tam O'Shanter


REQUIRED MATERIALS

1 1/2 ozs. white and 1/2 oz. pink, 4-ply BEEHIVE Scotch Fingering Wool.
A No. 8 Celluloid Crochet Hook.

NOTE(s)

Similar in stitch and style to this baby bonnet, this is a quickly made Tam O'Shanter and has a smart appearance.

Work at a tension to produce about 6 stitches and 6 rows to the inch.

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS

Commencing with the white wool at the center of the Crown, make 4 ch. Join into a ring with 1 s.c.

1st Round - Make 2 ch. to stand for the first half tr. stitch, then work 7 more half tr. into the ring.

Work in rounds, taking up both threads throughout (do not turn or join at the end of the rounds).

2nd Round - Work 2 half tr. into the top of the 2 ch. (which commenced the previous round), *2 half tr. in the next stitch, repeat from * until there are 8 groups each containing 2 half tr.

3rd Round - Work 2 half tr. into the first stitch, 1 half tr. in the next, * 2 half tr. in the following stitch, and 1 half tr. in the next, repeat from * to the end of the round.

4th Round - *Work 2 half tr. into the first stitch, 1 half tr. in each of the next 2 stitches, repeat from * to the end of the round.

5th Round - *Work 2 half tr. in the first stitch, 1 half tr. in each of the next 3 stitches, repeat from * to the end of the round.

6th Round - *Work 2 half tr. in the first stitch, 1 half tr. in each of the next 4 stitches, repeat from * to the end of the round.

Continue in this manner, with 1 extra stitch between each increasing in every round, until 20 rounds have been worked.

Work 2 rounds without shaping.

Then work 7 more rounds, decreasing once over each of the increased points in every round. Fasten off.

The Band for the Tam O'Shanter

Using colored wool make 11 ch.

Work backwards and forwards with 8 d.c. in each row, taking up both threads and turning with 2 ch., until 20 inches are worked. Fasten off and, with the colored wool, sew neatly together the 2 ends of the Band. Sew the Crown to the Band. Add a large pom-pom, made from the colored wool, to the center of the Crown.

Take a length of white wool and, using it double, thread 2 rows near the top of the Band. Thread 2 similar rows, but using the colored wool, through the white fabric just above the Band.
