This is a crochet pattern for a horned Viking helmet. The pattern is written, abbreviated in parts (with explanations) and features 80 color photos to further illustrated steps of the pattern. It comes with 9 different sizes from newborn to XL adult. Each size comes with its own two-page pattern.

The hat can easily be customized with different colors, the horns attached higher or lower or turned upside down, lengthened or shortened, etc. I used Bernat Super Value to create the pattern, but any medium 4 size yarn will work out just fine as long as the gauge is correct.

MATERIALS NEEDED:
Yarn: Heavy worsted or aran weight Medium 4 yarn, yardage depends on hat size, yarn used for pattern photos is Bernat Super Value yarn in the listed colors, any colors can be substituted:
color A: hat base, 40-150 yards, Redwood Heather
color B: contrast, 40-125 yards, Clay
color C: horns, 25-100 yards, Natural
Hooks: size H/5mm, size G/4mm
Pins or safety pins
Darning needle
Polyester stuffing (washable), such as Poly-Fil

Stitches needed: ch, sl, sc, hdc, dc, 2tog (of varying stitches)
