I had an idea. What if I made a tam starting with the dark brown from inside the ball on the left? And then when the brown matched the outside of the ball on the right, I would cut and join. And then finish the tam with the cream in the center top. How would that work out?
Sorry for the poor indoor lighting pictures but here it is:
Pattern: Lace Tam
Needles: US 6
I like it! I'll block and give it to my mom for Christmas.
