By Ysolda Teague, here is a perfect match to her Snapdragon Mitts! The Snapdragon Tam is a marvel.
Here is a cosy tam featuring an allover lattice cable pattern, with petals (or perhaps they're little flames) that grow organically in the centre of each open section.
Although the instructions look lengthy and the chart may seem a little daunting Snapdragon is surprisingly simple to knit, and of course you can work from either written or charted directions.
Work it in a bright glowing colour or a cool neutral -- Snapdragon is a fun pattern that's sure to cheer up any dreary day and would make a perfect gift.
