It fits great.
I have a head/face shape that looks awful in most hats. Cone-head, I think is the term. Any head-hugging hat looks terrible on me. A tam does much to hide those defects.
And in other good news, the matching
Since the tam has a few rounds of seed stitch in an otherwise stockinet format, I am knitting similar seed stitch stripes into the scarf. Lays flat and looks good so far.
The pessimist would say "This luck can't last." The optimist would say "I thing we've turned a corner." This knitter says "Some days, it's all about process. Happy Knitting."
