Swashbuckling Adventures

Standard

T is only Monday, and here I am, about to post…

I literally forced myself to sit down and type up the pattern for the Viking/Skyrim horn. The weather is gorgeous and my garden calling.


It’s been so long since I shared one of my own patterns, it was well-past time. 🙂

Without further ado, here it is:

Free Horn Pattern by The Sparkly Toad

Notes: This horn is worked in both single and double crochet.

INC means make two stitches in the same stitch.

INC in this pattern are worked in DC.

Work in continuous rounds, do not join.

Mark your place with a stitch marker as needed, although some rounds may overlap.


Ch 2. 

1: Make 6 sc in the chain farthest from the hook. (6 st)

2: DC-inc x3 (two dc in each of the next three stitches), 3 sc (9st)

3: Sc around (9st)

4: DC-Inc x3, 6sc (9st)

5: Sc around (12st)

6: (DC-Inc, DC)x3, 6sc 

7: Sc around (15st)

8: (DC-inc, DC) x4, 7sc

9: sc around (19st)

10: (DC-Inc, 2DC) x4, 7sc

11: sc around (23st)

12: (DC-Inc, 2DC) X5, 7sc

13: sc around (30sc)


At this point, there will be no more inc, just sc and dc stitches, so all remaining rounds have 30 stitches.

As long as you keep like stitches approximately lined up, your horn will turn out fine!


14: 21DC, 9, SC

15: sc around

16: 20DC, 10SC

17: sc around

18: 19DC, 11SC

19: sc around

20: 18DC, 12SC

21: sc around

22: 17DC, 13SC

23: sc around


Continue to desired length. 

Next week, the links to the complete design: helmet and beard.

Happy hooking!

    This is so awesome! Great, easy horn pattern—thank you!!! I’m having trouble finding the links to complete the helmet, were they posted?

    Thanks!

    • Thanks, Amanda, I’m glad you like it! I reverse-engineered the helmet from photos on the web, I didn’t use a pattern. There are several patterns of helmets for sale on Ravelry, I believe. Happy hooking!

    I really am excited to complete this pattern BUT I’m stuck on 13. At the end of row 12 we end up with 27 stitches but in row 13 we sc 30…… I’ve been trying to figure out how best to fix it, but I’m just a wee novice. Can you help me figure this out?
    TIA

    • Hi Sherry, thanks for commenting! Honestly, when my stitch count is off, I just keep going… 3 stitches isn’t going to make much difference in the circumference! My pattern count could be off, I’m more artist than mathematician. Happy crocheting!
