Cha-Ching Tam

The Cha-Ching Tam is based on a traditional coin stitch with an unexpected twist, beads! A super quick and addictive knit.... your will want more than one! The kit is packaged in a clear plastic tube, keeping the yarn safe but visible.The easy-to-memorize stitch pattern is both charted AND written out! Video tutorials are included to help with learning the stitch!

Cha-Ching Mitts and Tam are designs from my first book Knockout Knits.
