I posted my pattern for a chain mail hood on my blog. Hope you enjoy it. It has not been tested and it is the first pattern I have written so hopefully it makes sense!

This is so cool! I never would've thought of this, and yours looks so real!

Thank you for sharing your pattern. I've just started this and am on row 17 I think and so far so good. DS is getting impatient now that he sees it coming along. :lol He's asked me to make a whole suit.......can't see that happening, I'm not that talented. lol

Has anyone else started this helmet? I was working on it last night and am on row 30 now but my DS was in bed when I started it so I couldn't try it on him as I went along.......tried it on him this morning and it's HUGE!! In fact it is a little big on me at the moment. I know I followed the pattern exactly as I marked each row as I finished and was home alone so no interruptions. lol Just wondering if it's supposed to be so big? In the picture, it looks smallish and would have fit my DS perfectly.

I'm sorry it is turning out too big???? DS is 8. Another little boy I made it for is 9. It is a tad big on my other ds who is 6.

On row 30 you haven't started the decreasing yet so it may tighten up as you get further down. Also the mesh will stretch out as he pulls it over his head which will tighten it up also.

I hope everything works out.:hook

Have pm'ed you. I finished it last night and DS loves it even though it's big. When I say big, I mean the top part that fits across your head...it fits me and is big and I have a large head and alot of hair. lol It could be the yarn I chose...will make a second one with a different yarn and see if that makes a difference.
