This was amazing and we had a full day on The Wharf, first on the DC Water Taxi to Georgetown and back, then an on board tour of the amazing Draken Viking Ship!

The photos are my son and grandson wearing their Viking Helmets. They received lots of compliments.

Thank you. Kids are great, but grandkids are the best.

I'm so glad you were able to see it. We have seen it several times at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut. It has spent the last two winters there. There is much online about the construction and voyage across the Atlantic.

Those hats are wonderful
My grandson attends Viking camp during school breaks and I’m sure would love one
Do you have a link to the pattern?
Thanks

I modified the horns, making them smaller.

For the Wee Viking version I knitted the hat large enough so it was loose to start with, attaching the bands made it tighter without making it too tight.

For the metal bands I reduced the width from 9 to 7 stitches and kept the bump the same size.

Viking Camp sounds like fun, my grandson would really enjoy that.
