Baby Thor was Thor for Halloween, of course. That meant he needed a helmet. So I came up with this cute, little crochet hat and added some felt wings to the side. I personally think he looks ridiculously adorable. He however is less than thrilled when I put it on his tiny coconut.
Gotta love that face.
Baby Thor Crochet Helmet Pattern

Total stitch count for the round is in parenthesis
This is a newborn / infant sized hat. To create a bigger sized hat repeat row 4 to increase your stitch count to your desired size, then continue with the pattern.
For the wings I took an 8.5 x 11 piece of felt, folded it in half, and traced my wing pattern using a fabric marker. Then I stitched along the line, creating a double thick wing. Once my wings were sewn, I cut around the stitching, about a 1/4 inch away from the thread. Then I hand stitched them to the helmet. TIP: To make sure they are even, place the bottom of the wings on the same row of crochet stitches.
If you make one I’d love to see it. Share it via social media with the hashtag #ambersimmonsblog.

So cute. If you change the gray to purple and gold you would have a MN Vikings hat 🙂
Haha. True, but we’re Eagle’s fans over here so I don’t think that would go over too well. 😉

Could that be any cuter?!? I would say no. You couldn’t have found a cuter model for the hat either. Love it! Thanks for entering Blog Wars, and Good Luck!
Good morning, Amber! I have a possible suggestion that might help simplify the braiding on the Anna and Elsa hats. When no model is available use a tall one half gallon jar and place the hat over the top of the jar. This could be a very viable stationary model to place on a table while braiding the hat.

That’s a great idea. Thanks for the tip.
