Medieval knight helmets. That's what hip nanas who know what it means to give their grandsons street cred crochet. Now I don't know if Dee Forrest is a grandma, but she's definitely privy to what the cool kids these days are looking for in their yarn-based accessories. Wearing her hand-crocheted hat with button-on, movable face warmer will leave no doubt that a distinguished man of valor and chivalry--one who respects his elders--has entered the room. It also won't set you back $218 like the Medieval Knight Hoodie. Though it's probably slightly itchier and, despite being loop-de-looped from washable acrylic yarn, may give you a face rash.

Crocheted Knight Helmets come in standard adult/teen circumference sizes of 20-1/2" to 22-1/2". Watermelon and Alec Baldwin heads that require size increases should let Forrest know upon order.

And if you want to prepare your infant for a life of chain mail and jousting, check out Forrest's Crocheted Knight Helmet & Bootie set ($40).

August 2013 Update: Dudes, Forrest seems to be crocheted out of knight headwear. It's questionable whether or not she even still has fingers. Thankfully, we live in a time wherein if one person creates something popular and profitable, a hundred other people copy it and hope to follow suit. Check out the host of crafty Amazon vendors also yarning and selling the helmets, seemingly with equal skill and valor.

Shop around. Share the love and dead presidents.
