Israeli-Style “Frik” Kippah

I looked everywhere on the web for an Israeli-style “Frik” kippah pattern, and couldn’t find one, so I found a pattern that was close enough to what I wanted and modified it. The picture below is how it turned out, and I am so happy, and my husband is so happy. I thought, If I am looking for such a pattern, there must be others, so I decided I would post it for anyone else wanting to make their own.
