Sunwheel Hat




Glaciers and lava, fire and ice. Northern lights dancing in the sky. Pools of steaming water. Iceland, both dream and reality. Awe inspiring!

The Sunwheel Hat design is knit from Plötulopi—unspun Icelandic wool that is sold in flat plates. I used part of a Nordic motif known as the sunwheel. I couldn’t decide between two different top treatments, however, so I’ve included two different charts for the decrease area.

This hat can be knit with 2 plates of yarn, one much darker than the other. You can also use several colors, shading the background as shown in the photo.
