Question

My husband wants a beanie with goat horns and I cant seem to find any patterns for horns, curving, etc :think. Does anyone know how to make it work so it curves some? thank you!

Let's assume you start with a crocheted tube. Start with for example 24 stitches. Work even in sc joined rnds for a few inches. On next rnd, sc in 8 sts, decrease 4 times, finish the rnd. Work the next rnds with no decreases. The tube will start to curve to your left.

You can add more decreases as needed -- in the same place in the rnd -- to get the

degree of curve you want.

 

You can also do the same thing with increases, then the piece will curve the opposite

direction.

 

Worth a try, but no guarantees!

You may have already tried this, but I typed "viking hat" into the search and found some info on other horned hats made by 'villers. Good luck!

There are Viking Helmet patterns on Ravelry, complete with horns, if you are looking for ways of doing them. :)

It's a knitting reference M=make

So it would be make 2 in first stitch

Whoa, those Krampus horns are impressive!  A search on Viking hat/helmet yields smaller ones for more to choose from, here are a couple.

http://crochetparfait.blogspot.com/2012/09/viking-helmet.html  more like 'Hagar the Horrible' horns

http://www.craftown.com/Viking-Beard-Hat.html  similar to the Krampas one

https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/epic-viking-beard  says beard, but is also the hat.

http://www.cinnamonpurl.com/only-to-show-you-im-still-here-post/  no hat, just horns.....I just realized this one was linked a couple of posts above (8 years ago!) and it makes reference to m=the word 'make', which I agree makes sense, as in "make 2 stitches in the next 1 stitch" (which adds 1 stitch).  If you don't knit, you can stop reading here.

Make in knitting doesn't mean 'make' in the sense of 'make a stitch here', it really means 'add', so M1 in knitting = add 1 stitch without using an existing stitch. In crochet 'make 2 stitches into the next stitch' adds 1 stitch.  Hope that makes sense,.
