Esme (pronounced ezz-mee, it’s a Scottish girl’s name!) is a quickly-knitted hat which gives you two looks in one. Worn on the top of the head, it’s a tam. With the cabled brim pulled down over the ears, it becomes a cloche hat. Knit at a tighter tension than recommended, the yarn makes a warm fabric, perfect for the cooler weather.
16 sts and 21 rows = 10cm/4inches in stocking stitch in the round
Note: for substitution purposes, chose a yarn with a tension of 14 sts and 19 rows = 10 cm/4 inches in stocking stitch.
