Horae Tam and Cowl – Project Kit


This beautiful Fair Isle tam and cowl were designed by Virginia Sattler-Reimer using our Shetland 4-ply from our Coffee Range. We love the traditional shape of the tam, and the cowl is really useful to keep you cosy in the cold weather.

The kit will come in one of our recyclable cardboard project boxes, and will contain 2 skeins of Shetland 4-ply and a patterns codes. The photographs show the tam and cowl knitted in Espresso and Latte shades, although you can pick from any of colours from our coffee range.

Please note that Horae Tam and Cowl kit does not contain a printed copy of the pattern. You will receive two codes with your order so that you can download the pdf for both patterns for free direct from Virginia Sattler-Reimer’s ravelry store.
