I didn't invent the idea of a crocheted viking hat - but I did make my own pattern, so I guess I'm pretty stoked about that!  Worsted weight grey yarn from Walmart, the horns are cotton yarn - the stuff people make wash cloths out of, the piggy tails are yellow dollar store yarn (that was so horrible to work with I would not recommend it for anything other than something like hair!)

The hat is crocheted in the round, mostly half-double crochet with back post double crochet to make the 'seams'.  Popcorn stitches make the rivets around the base of the 'helmet'.

Bwhahahahahaha! I'm sorry, but as someone who actually isn't a "kid person," that second picture just ROCKS! That's the cutest little viking I've ever seen!
