Crochet Knight Helmet (Adult size)

Hey everyone! Here is the pattern for a crochet knight helmet - the size is tween/adult small. It would be easy to make it a bit bigger - just throw in a few extra stitches when you make the hat base, then move the visor around to fit when you sew it on.


Abbreviations
Ch - chain
Sc - single crochet
Dc - double crochet
Dc2tog - double crochet two together (decrease)
St - stitch
Sl st - slip stitch
Rep - repeat
Rnd - round

Hook size: H (5mm)

Hat Base

Rnd 1 - Make magic ring, ch 2, 9 dc around, sl st to close (Here is a good tutorial on how to do a magic ring.)
Rnd 2 - Ch 2, *2 dc in each dc, rep from * around, sl st
Rnd 3 - Ch 2, *2 dc in first dc, dc in next, rep from * around, sl st
Rnd 4 - Ch 2, *2 dc in first dc, dc in next two dc, rep from * around, sl st
Rnd 5 - Ch 2, *2 dc in first dc, dc in next three dc, rep from * around, sl st
Rnd 6 - Ch 2, *2 dc in first dc, dc in next four dc, rep from * around, sl st
Rnd 7 - Ch 2, dc around, sl st
Rnd 8 - Ch 2, *2 dc in first dc, dc in next eight dc, rep from * around, sl st
Rnd 9 - Ch 2, dc around, sl st
Rnd 10 - Ch 2, *2 dc in first dc, dc approximately 1/3 of the way around, rep from * around, sl st (Basically you should have three increases from this round, evenly spaced.)
Rnds 11-15 - Ch 2, dc around, sl st
Rnds 16-19 - Ch 2, dc halfway around, turn (You will be working back and forth to create the flap at the back of the hat.)

Visor

Rnd 1 - Make magic ring, ch 2, 9 dc around, sl st
Rnd 2 - Ch 1, *2 sc in first dc, rep from * around, sl st

Now you will be working in rows and switching between gray (G) and black (B). You will have a lot of ends to weave in later! Start your rows by working across the top of the circle in gray. Turn your work at the end of each row.

Row 1 - (G) Ch 2, 3 dc
Row 2 - (B) Ch 2, 2 dc in first st, dc in next, 2 dc in last
Row 3 - (G) Ch 2, 2 dc in first st, dc in next 3, 2 dc in last
Row 4 - (B) Ch 2, 2 dc in first st, dc in next 5, 2 dc in last
Rows 5-9 - (G,B,G,B,G) Ch 2, dc across
Row 10 - (B) Ch 2, 2 dc in first st, dc in next 7, 2 dc in last
Rows 11-12 - (G,B) Ch 2, dc across
Row 13 - (G) Ch 2, 2 dc in first st, dc in next 9, 2 dc in last
Row 14 - (B) Ch 2, dc2tog, dc in next 9, dc2tog
Rows 15-16 - (G,B) Ch 2, dc across
Row 17 - (G) Ch 2, dc2tog, dc in next 7, dc2tog
Rows 18-22 (B,G,B,G,B) Ch 2, dc across
Row 23 - (G) Ch 2, dc2tog, dc in next 5, dc2tog
Row 24 - (B) Ch 2, dc2tog, dc in next 3, dc2tog
Row 25 - (G) Ch 2, dc2tog, dc in next, dc2tog, finish off.

Now you will need to make a matching circle for the other side of the visor. Repeat rounds 1 and 2 from the beginning of the visor.

 Use sc to attach the circle to the rest of the visor, .like in this picture:


Continue on with sc around. 3 sc in middle row to make a point , then continue on as normal.


When you reach the circle on the other side, 2sc, sc in next 2 around, until you reach the other side of the visor, sc across (3 sc in middle row as on other side). When you reach the first circle, 2sc, sc in next 2 around, sl st to close, use tail of yarn to sew up small gap where circle is attached.


Crest

You will need to make 2 pieces.

Row 1 - Ch 27, dc in 3rd ch from hook, dc across (25 sts total)
Row 2 - Ch 2, dc across

Take both pieces and hold them together. Sc around 3 sides to attach (short side, long side, short side).

Assembling the hat

Sew the crest to the back of the hat as shown in the photo.

Try the hat on and carefully pin the visor to fit, then sew the circles on (use a few stitches in the center so they will still pivot) and sew silver buttons in the center of the circles.

You may want to add a bit of velcro to the visor edge and hat edge so the visor won't fall down around your neck. The best place to sew this on is in the corner by the flap that goes across the back of your neck, but play around with it to find a good place to sew it on where it doesn't show.

Enjoy!

If you have any difficulties, please let me know and I will try to help. My patterns aren't always perfect!
