The Design

"For Fair Isle lovers."

The Autumn and Midnight Sun Tams, both designed by Sandy Blue for Simply Shetland, have been Churchmouse favorites for years. The gorgeously intricate stranded colorwork—using ten and eleven different colors, respectively!—is engaging to knit and mesmerizing in the finished hats. With that iconic, Scottish shape and complexly detailed motifs, each of these tams will be an heirloom piece in your wardrobe.

Both the Autumn and Midnight Sun Tams are knit in a spectrum of Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift. Made from the same hardy, wee breed as our favorite Shetland Heather Aran (i.e. 100% Shetland sheep wool), this lofty woolen-spun yarn has the perfect toothy texture for stranded colorwork!
