Mohawk or Roman helmet hat
|Mohawk or Roman helmet hat|
I am a fan of beautiful and colored hats. Crazy models, wild colors and interesting patterns just make me feel happy and ready to play outside in the snow. I love making crazy models for my little boy, too.
This is an adaptation of a crochet hat. When I knitted this hat I knew nothing about crochet. Now I know 2 or 3 things, but I am trying to learn. I think crochet and knitting can bring you calm and happiness in your life and make you more confident.
I feel so happy and proud when my husband tells everybody about his Christmas present. I made him a handmade unique scarf inspired by his games. He loved it more that I could imagine.
I knew he is gone like it, but his reaction was more than I expected. So it was all worth it. He had a big surprise.
This hat is very easy to knit. No difficult patterns, no new and strange stitches. I don’t remember the needles I used, but you need to use the needles that go great with your yarn. Any yarn is good.
L = 46 cm
Cast 110 stitches.

With a needle sew together the ends.
To make the ear flaps measure the hat. Each ear flap is 6 cm long and is situated 10 cm from the front and 7 from the back.
Knit 12 stitches for the flap. You can work on the stitches of the hat. Knit 8 rows or more if you want a longer flap.
For the final touch I used the crochet and I did a stitch around the hat and the flaps. This is everything I knew at that time about crocheting. To keep the hat on the hat I made 2 simple cords and I attached on the ear flaps. For the cords and the crocheting around the hat I used the same yarn I used for the Mohawk.
I choose a stronger one so it stays up most of the time.

I adapted this crochet pattern to a knitting pattern.
For the Mohawk I made a knitted strip 22cm long and knitted 3 rows.
I cut the yarn 16 cm long and using the crochet I made the fringe. I add the fringe all over the strip. I was very careful not to leave empty spaces.
Sew it on the hat and trim the fringe so it looks good on the hat.
I hope you like it. Keep knitting or crocheting!
