Mulinello starts with a circular cast-on for a top-down spiral, whilst at the same the brim is started bottom-up. As you work through the Hat, the two pieces are cleverly and easily joined, resulting in a perfect finish at both the brim and the crown.

Illustrated tutorials are included for all relevant techniques to help guide you through the process. The pattern is provided in 6 sizes, ensuring you can cover plenty of heads!
