Etsy seller Dee Forrest has an unexpected hit with this $40 crocheted knight's helmet with a clever movable visor. The item is waitlisted for a very, very long time. Get in line now, you might have it by next winter!

(Thanks, Fipi Lele!)
Some crafter’s going to say it, so I may as well: that’s crocheted. Also very cool, but crocheted.
What does it matter? Put it this way — if it doesn’t matter, why call it out at all? Why not just say “handmade”? If you’re a crafter, the difference between knitting and crocheting is the same as between gluing and sewing — they both connect parts together, but their pros and cons as methods are different, and they look and feel different.
Thanks for the correction!
that’s not how a visor works.
Never been too excited about yarny stuff (whether knitted or crocheted). But if I had this I would NEVER take it off.
very cool hat
I must have this. I don’t care if it’s 5 years from now.
I hope people will have the good sense not to walk into a bank or place with a cash register with their face covered. They will scare the bejezuz out of people.
You must A) be easily frightened and B) not live in a really cold climate.
