Crinaeae are nymphs associated with fountains in Greek Mythology. This lovely top down hat is named for them. The undulating cable and lace pattern mimics dancing, flowing water. The optional pompom adds a whimsical touch.

This hat is worked from the top down in the round. For a slouchier fit as shown; knit the size closest to your actual head measurement, for a closer fit; knit one size down from your head measurement. Both written and charted instructions are included.
