Closer Look at the Fleece Viking hat

Here’s a closer look at the simple Viking-inspired hat that I made as part of Jake’s winter Viking kit, worn at last weekend’s Vermont Winter Renaissance Fair.
The shape is super simple, and historically based but also still popular today. I used a Luxe fleece instead of wool because of cost and availability. The bottom is rolled under, so it’s double thick and double warm.The embroidery was all hand-done by me. I made sure to only use zig-zag variations so that the embroidered design would stretch as much as the fleece does, and wouldn’t alter the fit of the hat.
