Named after the Italian fairytale, Cannetella is a beautiful Hat with gentle slouch and an easier than you think lace pattern. The arches, reminiscent of Renaissance architecture, work their way around the body and into the crown, where it comes together with a gently gathered finish.

Worked in sock yarn, the Hat is knit in the round and bottom up, with 4 sizes included. The instructions are provided in both written and charted format, and the pattern includes an illustrated tutorial for the specialist cast on.
