Giostra’s staggered bobbles and gently peaked crown hint playfully at the carousels it is named for, making a Hat that’s as appealing to kids as it is flattering to adults.

It knits up fast in aran weight and will fit anyone from 6-month-old babies to large adults.

Available either as a single pattern or as part of the Painted Woolly Toppers collection.
