Just a quick post for y'all today!
I thought I'd share a couple of the cute hats I've been making lately. This is a fun, simple pattern that's well written and easy to use. You should make one, you never know when a Viking Helmet could come in handy!
This one is the newborn size.
This guy is the adult size.
The pattern is called Lael Viking Helmet by Mamachee on Ravelry and is not free BUT it comes in many sizes so you're likely to use it over and over. Like I have.
I used Lions Brand Wool Ease for mine and it turned out nice and soft and wonderful. It's 80% Acrylic 20% Wool, and you can toss it in the washer and dryer. Magic. Though for this project, with the polyester stuffing in the horns, I'd suggest not tossing this hat in the dryer, the fluff might get lumpy! Nobody wants lumpy fluff.
Give this pattern a try, it whips up in no time and the hardest part is figuring out which directions you want your horns to face.
Now go forth and make yourself a silly hat! Have a great weekend! I'm gonna be Pumpkin carving with the girls, I'll take lots of pictures to show off our Pumpkin artwork next week!
Thanks for stopping by!
