Ren faire geeks and history buffs gather ’round, because this crocheted knight’s helmet from HattieHooker on Etsy is pretty darn brilliant. (The mouth guard face warmer is buttoned on and actually moves!) I don’t know about you, but this crocheted gem rates pretty darn high on the list of awesome things that I would totally wear in public.

Fair warning: If you’d like to purchase one of your own, the knight’s helmet is so popular that there’s currently about a 20 week wait time for orders.

    If you’re crafty (as a reader of MAKE and/or CRAFT, a likely bet), the pattern is also for sale on HattieHooker’s website. Hell, you could learn to crochet and make your own easily within the 4.5 month lead time to order one!
