Light and Shadow, a textured tam by Tin Can Knits is the fifth pattern from the charitable Sight of Life e-book. Delicate cables form an interlocking pattern of light and shadow on this textured tam. 100% of the proceeds from this pattern are donated to a big cause.

By purchasing this pattern, you help blind people in Congo DR to see again. A doctor working there, in the poorest country in the world, restores sight for hundreds of people. Check this group to see how the donated income will be used: Sight is Life project.

 Worsted or Aran Weight

DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: Trinity Worsted by SweetGeorgia Yarns (70% Merino Wool / 20% Cashmere / 10% Silk; 115g/200yds): 1 Skein. Shown in Tumbled Stone & Birch.

ALTERNATE YARN: Knightsbridge by Fibre Co. (65% Baby Llama / 25% Merino Wool / 10% Silk; 50g/120 yds): 1 (2) Skeins.  This yarn has been discontinued and is only available for a short while!  Silky soft, extra warm, beautifully plied, and slightly heathered for the perfect, luxurious hat with a beautiful sheen.  

ALTERNATE YARN: Rios by Malabrigo (100% Superwash Merino Wool; 100g/210 yds): 1 (1) Skein.  Rios is a staple yarn when making hats.  While Rios does not possess the sheen of cashmere & silk, it does provide beautiful tonal variation due to the kettle dying process and the springy Merino Wool.  And if you accidentally wash this in the machine, it is less likely to felt and shrink compared to untreated merino.
