Enough with frilly girly cupcakes. It’s time for a MAN’s baby hat! Yar! Or whatever vikings say. For a more Valkerie version of this hat, sew on some blonde braids instead of the earflaps! Here we go.

SIZE
3-9 mos.

MATERIALS

  • 1 Skein silver or gray worsted weight yarn
  • 1 Skein brown yarn
  • 1 Skein off white yarn
  • Size US 7 DPN, OR SIZE OBTAIN GAUGE
  • Crochet hook, size G
  • Large-eyed, blunt needle
  • Sitich markers
  • Small amount of Fiberfill

GAUGE
17-18 st/22 rows to 4?

BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

MAKE RIVET:
Knit into front and back, then front and back again of 1 stitch. 4 stitches.
Turn work, p4.
Turn, k4.
Turn, p4.
Turn, k2tog, k2tog, pass 1st st over 2nd. 1 stitch.

DIRECTIONS
With silver, cast on 80 st. Place marker and join.
Row 1: *k1, p1, repeat from * to marker.
Row 2: *p1 k1, repeat from * to marker.
Rows 3 and 4: Knit.
Row 5: *k7, make rivet (see above), repeat from * to marker.
Rows 6 and 7: Knit.
Row 8: *k1 p1, repeat from * to marker.
Row 9: * p1 k1, repeat from * to marker.

Time to join on brown! Drop that silver. With brown, knit every row until entire hat measures 5 inches.

Now we decrease.
Next row: *k8, k2tog. You should know what the * means by now.
Next row: Knit.
Next row: *k7, k2tog.
Next row: Knit.
Next row: *k6, k2tog.
Next row: Knit.
Next row: *k5, k2tog.
Next row: Knit.
Next row: *k4, k2tog.
Next row: Knit.
Next row: *k3, k2tog.
Next row: Knit.
Next row: *k2, k2tog.
Next row: Knit.
Next row: *k1, k2tog.
Next row: Knit.
Next row: *k2tog.

Eventually you’ll have 4 stitches left. If now, keep k2tog until you do. Didn’t write down where to stop. Anyhow, 4 st left, break yarn and thread through.

EARFLAPS:
Pick up 8 stitches under one of the rivets.
Rows 1-8: Moss stitch. (k1p1 one row, p1k1 the next.)
Row 9: SSk, moss to end, k2tog.
row 10: Moss across.
Row 11: SSk, moss to end, k2tog.
Row 12: Moss across, boss.
Row 13: SSk, moss to end, k2tog. Pass 1st st over second, 1 stitch remains.

Grab that crochet hook and work a chain for 5 inches or so. Now, count over three rivets, and make another earflap. They should have 2 rivets between ‘em. Just make it look good, kids. This isn’t a science.

HORNS
Make 2. Obviously.
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.
Next row: K12, turn work, k8, turn, k to end.
Next row: Purl.
Next row: K12, turn work, k8, turn, k to end.
Next row: Purl.
Work 7 more rows in stockinette.
BO all stitches.
Sew up seam, stuff with fiberfill, and attatch to hat.

YAR! No, that’s pirates. What DO vikings say, anyways??

Anyhow. You’re done now. Go pillage.
