Crocheted Knight Helmet

Sir Knight, doth thou mother know you weareth her crochet? :p

I've been working on this project for a Thailand-based photographer who goes around the world taking beautiful pictures (which you might see in international publications like the Lonely Planet and Leisure+Adventure Travel). For someone who may go to Nepal once in a while, I think this would be a warm and bad ass companion :)
This is called the "Sir Knight Helmet." I bought the pattern for this project from Cute & Crafty Crochet in Etsy. The pattern was made by Martina Gardner. Check out her other kick ass hat patterns!

The pattern provides stitch adjustments for different sizes, so even babies can wear this! Let's support other crocheters by acknowledging (and buying) their original work :) Check out the adult version of this helmet crocheted by Hattie Hooker in Etsy. She also acknowledged the source of the original pattern by Cute & Crafty Crochet.

I can't wait to see my client wear this amid some exotic or marvelous background in one of his travels!

On another note, I've been drooling over these lately. Your dose of yarn porn for the week :p Happy weekend everyone!
