Crochet Hat plus some

Last year I bought a crochet slipper pattern from mamachee on etsy.  They worked up quite nicely.  But today I don't want to talk about them.  I want to talk about her pattern for a crochet viking hat!  I loved it right from the moment I saw it, but how often does one really need a viking hat?  I couldn't come up with a good reason to purchase the pattern.

Until last week!

My husband is an assistant hockey coach of my kids hockey team (two of my kiddies play on the same team).  The other day the head coach, a friend of ours, told my husband he looks like a viking.  That is all I needed to get the pattern. (I told you had had been pining for it).

It was a great pattern.  It went together perfectly.  I had it done in time for my husband to wear to their last game.  Fun.

Since it is Wednesday, I will fill you in on my Work in Progress (WIP).  Really, I have not done much, just a little bit more of my hexagon quilt.  I keep saying I will wait until all the hexies are made to take pictures, but I thought I should show you that I am actually working on them.

Aren't they fantastic?  I have a little over 800 done.

My To Do List
Farmer's Wife
Master Bedroom Curtains
Slipcover for Playroom Couch
Rag Quilt
Knit Hat
Crochet Hanging Basket (this is not done, but I lost my direction.  I will take it off the list indefinitely)

I am linking up with
WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. your hexies look beautiful arranged by color like that :) great job on the viking hat! My boys would just love hats like that - it might be worth learning to crochet just to make a viking hat :)

  2. The hat is so cute! Your hexy pile is amazing. I did 18 large ones for a moda bake shop project and I thought they were a fair bit of work! Over 800! Great work.

  3. can you tell me if the Viking hat is done in sections then sewn together... trying to make it without the born size... thanks

  4. can you tell me if the Viking hat is crochet in pieces and sewn together trying to make it for my grandsons and having a hard time thanks so much they arrive next month and want a newborn size. thanks Nana

    1. The horns were sewn on after making the hat.
