NOTE: Cascade Locks Tam is a completely redesigned and updated release of Marie’s 2015 pattern of the same name.
Cascade Locks is a charming small town forty miles from Portland, Oregon that provides a most picturesque inspiration for the wavy slipped stitch waterways in this design. This textured topper knits-up quickly and will be a favorite for those who don’t care for a close-fitting beanie style.
