Viking Hat

Finally something "manly" crocheted for the NVO!

I purchased this pattern from Tara at the "Easy Makes Me Happy" blog. She has a wonderfully simple and to-the-point blog, full of love and warmth with amazing projects and lots of talent, to boot. The pattern for the crocheted leaves on my header come from her blog, as well - see "Apple Blossom Header" post for a link to her free leaf pattern. I love everything she creates! The pattern has been sitting around here for a while and yesterday I noticed that some of her followers had sent in photos of the viking hats they had made and I did not want to be outdone! :-)

So here ya' go NVO
You truly are my viking!
(I think viking is a good thing...if not, I meant it to be!)
I hope you like it better than the "funky chicken hat"

The pattern was easy to follow - some of these stitches/techniques were new to me, so I will likely make another one to correct my mistakes.
Thank you Tara - this was perfect for us being Norwegian and all!

Follow-up Thursday April 28th:
The NVO has been wearing his hat since he received it.
