The Vikings, Norway’s ancient explorers, warriors and merchants travelling all the way to America 500 years before Columbus, did not knit.

However, I have made this knitted hat with inspiration from the Viking King Audbjørn of Fjordane (the Fjords), buried in a large burial mound at my hometown Nordfjordeid, Norway, in the year 870.

In the hat design you find King Audbjørn’s warrior mask and the flames burning the King’s dead body, inside one of the largest Viking longships ever built.

The hat is knitted in Fair isle technique in the round, and come in sizes for toddler, child, woman and man.
