Chainmail Hat/Helmet

My grandson, Jacob, loves watching movies/TV shows with Knights.  He wants a complete outfit with all of the accessories made for him.  This will take a little time for me, but for now I have made him a "Chainmail Hat/Helmet" and in another post I will add the pattern for the "Sword."

I used worsted weight yarn for this project.  It was quick and easy and fun to make.

This will definitely make for a cute project for a costume for a play, drama, church or Halloween!!!  Here is the LINK to my Knight's Sword Pattern:
