Baby Viking Hat

February 2009

There's NOTHING cuter than a baby in a novelty hat. So I found this pattern totally irresistible.

This was based on Sarah's pattern, but very loosely. I had to modify it for gauge and so that the hat was knitted flat rather than in the round (I hadn't got the hang of DPNs at this stage). I also started shaping the crown much sooner than intended, and stuffed the horns so as to bulk them out a bit.

The whole thing took less than two days to make (with a little bit of help from my Mum, who did the horns), and is still one of my favourite finished objects ever.
