Vermillion Red Trilobite Tam

Vermillion red trilobite tam

The only name for this color is vermillion. Red just doesn't cut it. It needs something more daring and romantic. Vermillion rolls off the tongue, and adds a touch of glamor.

Slouchy tam-style hats are very flattering. I call this style of hat the trilobite tam, because the pattern reminds me of those ancient fossilized crustaceans. The brim is stretchy, and will fit just about anyone. The full crown is perfect for tucking up your hair. The light crochet pattern makes this an all-season hat. Wear it in winter to keep your hair neat under your layers, and during the rest of the year as a versatile accessory.

All of the materials used to make this hat are upcycled.
