This fun hat was inspired by the colorful onion domes of the St. Basil Cathedral in Moscow. During the long period of short and gloomy winter days everyone needs to add color to life. For this project you can use from two to eight colors, which makes it perfect to use up these odds and ends and get creative. The decorative ridge you will get on the right side adds beautiful texture to the pattern.
The hat is worked top down with six strips knitted together and comes in six sizes from preemie to adult large.
There is no sewing involved
