Viking Helmet Hat – Knitting Pattern

Many moons ago I made a Viking Helmet beanie, and I didn’t write down the pattern.  Like some kind of fool.  So I made another.  This one has smaller, cuter horns, which I think would work well on a smaller hat for a child as is. 

Directions:

Main hat

Cast on 80 stitches in a brown fluffy yarn on size 5.5mm needles.
Knit 12 rows

Change to grey wool.
Stst 30 rows

Knit 3, k2 together – repeat to end of row.
Purl whole row.
K2, k2 together – repeat to end of row.
Purl whole row
K1, k2 together – repeat to end of row.
Purl whole row
K2 together – repeat to end of row.

HORNS

Using 4mm needles, and white wool.
CO1 leaving a long tail for sewing up the seam.
Row 1: knit into front and back of that one st. 2 st.
Row 2 (and all even rows): Purl.
Row 3 (and all odd rows now!): k into front and back, k to last st, k into front and back.
Repeat rows 2 and three until there are 16 stitches.
K one row.
P one row.
