Finnougoria II: the cap inspired by diagonal Finno-Ugric patterns

The diagonal patterns based on Finno-Ugric textile traditions offer such a great opportunities for the designers. Here is another cap with instructions. For the community use.

Finnougoria II cap

I worked out some technical kinks from the previous version of the cap with the diagonal patterns.

This version reminds even less the patterns of traditional Finnish or Komi hand-knit items. I extrapolated the new design from the previous one. And the previous one I derived from the traditional Komi patterns.

I used the traditional patters as a framework to extend the existing ways of making things. This is the most wonderful and robust thing about any folk tradition: it can be extended.

The instructions (tension, material choice, construction, etc.) are the same as for the cap Finnougoria I.

On the left side there are stitches marked as LAST STITCHES IN ROW. They are there to prevent the unsightly jog.
