I recently tried this because I thought it would be a fun project.  Our high school nickname is the Trojans, and with a little modification, this made a terrific "Trojan" helmet!  I did it in our school colors and added our logo.  Unfortunately, the letters look backward in the photo--it's really WM.  The kids in the drum line went nuts, and I've ended up making several.  I alternated single and double crochet rows to make it go faster.  Thanks for the inspiration!  
(I'm going to have to post some more things before you can go to my gallery and see the photo!  sorry...)

This hat is awesome. If I didn't have so many projects lined up (well past the chilly season), I would definitely try to make this.

Thanks so much for the tutorial, I just finished making mine and I'm so happy with how it came out! Cheesy

I LOVE THIS HAT. I know like 3 people at least who could use this.

I have a potentially dense question, though.

How much yarn did you all use? I'm going to be buying yarn specifically for this project, so I don't want to buy too little - and I'm pretty broke, so I don't want to buy too much.

Sorry if I'm reanimating a dead thread, but a little zombie love never hurt anybody too much, right?

I don't know how much in terms of ounces or yardage, but each skein that I purchased (one for the hat and one for the 'hawk) was average in size, and I only used a little more than half of each kind for one hat.  If you wanted to make 3 hats, I would say 2 skeins of each kind of yarn would do it.

I loved this idea!! It's so fun and innovative.  I changed the pattern a little so that the ear flaps weren't lengthening the back at all and they just covered the ears. I had a bit of trouble with the mohawk, but I'm just about to felt it and I'm really excited about how I think it'll come out.  I cut my 'hawk pieces at 8 inches long so that when looped they were about 4 inches long each so that when they felted they wouldn't be too small.  Had a lot of fun with it and will upload pictures when it's finished!

I wish i was a glow worm
A glow worm's never glum
Cause how could you be grumpy
When the sun shines out your bum!

Thank you for this tutorial!!
I just finished this for my hubby for Christmas, just need to felt the mohawk now!
I'm hoping he will  like it since he was pretty sad when he had to cut off his mohawk for his job search.
