A knight in knitted armor

A knight ready to protect his castle.

Hood up!


"My casual, going in to the castle to relax pose."

I took a few days off from working on the hood, but finally finished it last night and attached it to the vest this morning. It's a very simple hood, but I didn't think this required something complicated (hey, it's chain mail, right??). The info for the armor, plus my hood instructions are here.


  1. You did a fantastic job! I love all the poses that Chase executed. Please tell him his shield is pretty awesome :)

  2. Chase looks great in his vest..Emily you did such a great job! We are leaving right now to go to the Ohio Renaissance Festival.

    Blessings to you,


  3. Hoho! I love this - especially his sauntering into the castle pose - a very cool knight indeed. xxxx

  4. Emily, it looks fantastic! Chase looks just great in it along with the shield and sword! Thanks for linking to your notes since I would love to knit one. xx

    Thanks! I'm really happy with the results. Chase says "Thank you!" also and would like you to know he plans on painting his shield this week at some point :)

    Thanks Renee! I hope you all have a great time at the OH Ren Fest. I hear it's a lot of fun (we're hoping to go to the MI fest this weekend).

    Thank you! I thought he was funny that he was labeling his different poses for me as I was taking pictures. Haha!

  8. Good job! LOVE the hood!! Thanks for sharing the pattern. I have a 5 year old nephew... maybe just an adjustment or two. :)

    Blessings, Debbie
