But that’s not the only thing you can use it for, as some recently released free patterns from the company illustrate.
The Hagar and Helga (link goes to a PDF) hats are Viking-inspired hats that are perfect for Halloween costumes for your little ones. Hagar comes complete with a mustache and beard, while Helga has long braids. Both have helmets with horns.
Of course you can still make Halloween-themed dishcloths while you’re at it: they have a really cute one that looks like candy corn (what is with all the knit candy corn?) and is worked in Seed Stitch (that one’s a PDF, too).
