VIKING HELMET KNITTING PATTERNS
I made my helmet for a toy owl to wear, but you could knit it as a fascinator or small party hat.
PLEASE NOTE: This free knitting pattern is for the helmet only, the owl knitting pattern is available to purchase separately from http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/festive-owls
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the helmet, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, and recommended yarns. The pattern is 3 pages and written in English.
TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work an increase and decrease and a sew seam. This pattern is intermediate level, but as it is free knitters of all abilities could give it a try!
YARN, NEEDLES & NOTIONS INCLUDE:
- A pair of straight 3.5mm knitting needles (US 4)
- Double knitting yarn (DK or light worsted weight)
- A small amount of toy filling (or cotton wool balls) to stuff the horns
