Reminiscent of the complex and decorative ironwork popularized by the Italian immigrant iron workers in cities like New York in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, Ferramenta (Italian for ironwork or ironmonger) is knit bottom up, in the round, and used twisted stitches and small cables to evoke the complex patterns that these workers incorporated into their art.

This hat can be worn as a slouch hat, or blocked flat into a beret/tam shape, making it suitable for men and women.
