Red Square Hat
LOOK too for other ETHNIC HATS: Native Language; Kistikan, Naniboujou, Out of Africa (coming in August) among others.
Nowhere in Russia is more iconic to me than Red Square in Moscow. I have never been but it seemed the perfect name for this hat in yummy Ravelry Red Malabrigo Rios worsted. Beginning with bright colors, a boxed braid, and ending up slouchy with long tassels, it will bring warmth on the coldest of winter days. Rios makes it soft and thick. The pattern, inspired by Russian Folk Motifs, make this stranded hat different from all others.
