Slovakian Folklore Cap

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit in the round
  • knit & purl
  • strand with 2 colors

Pattern Description:

The Slovakian Olympic team in Sochi had the most amazing knitwear on during the opening ceremonies. A little research on the origin of the motifs made the story so much more interesting. In Cicmany, Slovakia, they paint their houses with many different motifs. Photos of the houses made me grab my graph paper and chart out the ones I liked best.

Add a unique stuffed, knotted TopKnot on top to make it special.

These are the parts of a hat that I love. I hope you will love it too.

NOTE: In the final pattern the placement of the 2nd and 3rd motifs are swapped to better balance the hat.
