It was walking through Milano that designer Alice Twain got her inspiration for the little hat which she called “A walk in Milano”. While skirting the Sforza Castle she met a woman wearing a hat with a design that inspired this Milan-themed hat. Twain used our Donegal to devise this intricate but not particularly difficult to knit hat.
The ribs of the border transtition into cables which create a tent-like shape that reminds of the Milan’s Cathedral front and its main spire topped with the famous “Madonnina” statue. The lofty and extremely soft Donegal does the rest: its woolen texture makes it extremely productive: a single 50 grams ball is enough to complete the whole hat.
