Nina Machlin Dayton Ferramenta Hat PDF
Reminiscent of the elaborate and decorative ironwork popularized by the Italian immigrant ironworkers in cities like New
York in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Nina Machlin Dayton’s 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. The twisted stitch pattern is charted and written out.
