I went searching the internet for a free knitting pattern for a request for a Viking Hat. I found Laura's blog Knit For Your Life. She provided a really clear explanation for how to knit a great looking hat. Here is a picture of hers:
I wanted it a little bit different so I went with a gray/silverish color for the bottom piece and continued with brown for the rest of the hat.
I also added braids to it.
Had a lot of
frustration fun learning how to make a bobble (the little nobby thing around the brim of the hat) But found a nice video on You Tube that helped. I am such a visual learner I need to SEE it happen before I can actually do it. Unless I've done it before. :)
Thanks so much for checking out my project. :-)
