A crown woven of flowers and decorated with bright ribbons is one of the oldest Ukrainian symbols. In the modern society, vinok is widely used as a cultural symbol on festive occasions, holidays and daily life. From this pattern, you can make a traditional vinok to fit your head circumference using wired twine, or you can use a fabric covered headband for a simplified flower crown. The pattern is written row-by-row using US crochet terms, along with crochet diagrams, step-by-step photos, and a conversion chart to UK terms.
