Crochet Viking Hat- Free Pattern – Off The Hook

Hello readers, this week in  Off The Hook  i’ve made a crochet viking hat.

I am fascinated by vikings and love reading and watching programs about them, so I was really excited when I was asked to design a viking hat for a friend. Now I am quite aware that real vikings did not actually wear horns on their helmets, but I think the horns look really cool.

I have included two sizes, adults and child. The child hat will fit  most children from 5-9 because of the stretchy nature of the crochet viking hat.

    It looks like in the adult hat pattern, you left out the row where you add the 5dc, after you do the rows of sc. I see it in the children’s size hat, but not the adult one.
