So there are a few really cool crochet patterns for knight's helms out there, but my crocheting skills are pretty rough. When I got a request to knit a knight's helm for a nephew's birthday gift, I thought I'd give a knitted version a go. Here it is: (trust me, it looks better on my nephew!) How hard could it be, right? As it turns out, it's *not* all that hard, but since I gave the helm away and didn't write the pattern down as I went, I'm going to give you the basic guidelines for making this helmet. I have already received requests for additional helms, and when I knit them, I'll make a *real* pattern. These guidelines are free to use for personal and non-commercial use.
