Awwh; that's adorable. I also liked the idea of blond braids for a valkerite (sp?).

Haha, that's too cute.

And may I just take this moment to remind everyone that the Vikings didn't wear horns on their helmets?

well - not in battle - and not all of them - but the following excerpts from the 'Straight Dope' site shows there was some evidence for the concept.

"Historical and archaeological evidence indicates that priests among the Norse and earlier Germanic peoples did wear headgear with horns"

"Archaeological finds, all but one of which date from the ninth century B.C. to about the seventh century C.E., back them up on the horn thing, but only to a degree. The ancients implied that such helmets were used in battle, but a ceremonial use is more likely. The finds consist mostly of images from rock carvings, horn carvings, coins, engraved metal objects, etc. A few actual horned helmets have been found; most are Germanic helmets from Denmark, but one is a Celtic model dredged from the Thames"

" two Bronze Age horned helmets unearthed at Viksų, Denmark sport long twisting horns made of metal. The Thames helmet to my mind suggests an ancient priest who got drunk enough to think it was a good idea to wear Madonna's cone bra on his head."

And at least the Viking horned helmet myth can't be liad at the feet of Hollywood movies - since "European artists had begun portraying ancient (pre-Viking) Germans wearing horned helmets as early as 1616, on the authority of the ancient writers. Since the ancients weren't clear on the ceremonial purpose of the helmets, they were often used in battle scenes. The use of horned helmets in German heraldry during the Middle Ages can probably be attributed to the same authors."

Right on.

viking hats all around for Christmas.

One for DS with horns.
One for DD with braids. brown with a bit of red!
One for DH with well horns. Because every good man needs a set of horns, put there by his wife! (Just kidding, would never cuckold him, he is too sweet. Besides, cuckolding would take more effort than just taking care of him.)

This is GREAT. Going to make one for a 6 month old. I was looking for something different as he's a third child and I've already made neat things for the other two. Thanks for finding and sharing this.

I saw that on Craftster and made it immediately for my soon-to-be 2 year old son. It is super easy and fast. I did not make the bobbles,I just can't figure them out. I have a booblephobia. Anyhoo, it is so freakin funny I can't stand it. I am also the creative genius that suggested the braids! I was commissioned by a male co-worker, who ski's often, to make him one with braids to wear on the slopes. I so need a picture of that.

For the record, those are not bobbles, or boobles. They are rivets. It says so in the pattern, K7, Make rivet.

I made this for DD, but it was apparent that my gauge was not what was specified in the pattern, but closer to DS size.

I am now making a smaller version for DD, with shorter horns, and eventually braids.

DS loves the hat BTW.

I made one for my boss for Christmas. It turned out huge, but he has a big head. I hope he likes it. My ds now wants one, but my husband has a problem with anything that resembles a rival football team?? He's a Rams/Chargers fan. :(

I just assumed that "rivet" meant the same as bobble. So funny, I just read right over it! I may have to try the rivet and slowly lead into bobbles.
