We love the new Berroco Yarn Ellen Cardigan #freepattern, but can't decide which colors of Ultra Alpaca to use. What a pretty yoke.

Ravelry: Faded Splendor Tam pattern by Janine BajusThis pattern is available for download for $5.50.     The tam includes traditional Fair Isle motifs and muted colors inspired by the lovely shades of faded Persian rugs. It has three parts: the band, the body, and the wheel at the top, which is formed by seven double decreases every other round. The body is a straight tube; the distinctive tam shape is created by blocking after the knitting is finished.
