Viking Hat gets an Upgrade for a Baby...

Dats right! What? I mean why not? :) If ever someone should don a I'm-gonna-kick-yer-butt viking hat why shouldn't it be a baby? :) In all fairness he's over 6 months old okay? I'm sure he can hold his own ;).

Hahaha :) Joking aside I'm really excited about this project. It came to me as a custom order and I'm writing up the pattern as I go. Mad skillz I know right? ;) The hat is a mix of knit and crochet. Its true I struggled through the main part of the hat, just setting up the base, the canvas if you will... when it comes to making the decreases needed for the crown of a hat, how many wedges you create as you decrease matters! It can really alter the look... so it took me a few tries and much grumbling... I think I had too much coffee ;P and when I'm not seeing progress I wonder just how long is a project really going to take me... more grumble cakes... oye vey... but I did it! I finished the base of the hat, then knit the "plate" and crocheted the "rivets" and sewed them on. I had to make up an ewok that was ordered earlier last week so this is where the project lies. I plan on adding some kick ass horns sometime this week with furry cuffs (oh yes ;)) and will update as I can.

Thank you for reading! :)


  1. Looks an awful lot like this one...

    1. Hi there! Thanks so much for your comment!

      My friend requested that I make for them my interpretation of that very same hat! I am flattered that without knowing this, you see the resemblance (though I think her horns are in better proportion than mine! :))

      Best, Dawn
