Love it! What size head is this for?

frogguruami said...

This was made for my son but it fit around my head no problem but it was a tad short. So you could add a few more rows if you were making it for a teen or adult!

How many oz's does the pattern require?

frogguruami said...

I think I was able to get two out of one skein. I am not sure how many ounces are in a skein of Simply Soft.

my husband will flip when he gets this. he was just saying he wanted me to make him one last night, half jokingly, and now i don't have to make a pattern :)

Ooh! Thanks for sharing this! We went to Medieval Times for the first time last weekend, and my boys are all about the knights now. They'll get a kick out of this. (Any chance of a full suit of mail? LOL)

It is definitely on the to do list but I don't know when I will be able to get to it. Probably after summer!

Robyn said...

That is SO awesome. One of these days- once I REALLY get halfway decent at crocheting, this is SO getting made for my kids dress up box!

Michelle said...

Hi,
I just love the Chainmail hood. I will make one for my kids and then I will hopefully have grandkids someday that will also like this for dressup

I would like to do this for my toddler (3 y/o)son who wants to be a knight for Halloween - reccomendations on adjustments to size? I am very new at this.

AM said...

This is worked top down. So I would work it until the top part was the right size and then move on to the mesh part.

Jennifer said...

WONDERFUL pattern! And such a handsome model :) Thanks so much for sharing this :)

Amy said...

Saw this at my son's pre-school. One of the mom's made it for her son for Halloween. I'm going to ask my dad (yeah, dad) to make ones for my boys. Thanks for posting!
