This pattern is for the men who want to unleash their inner Viking King. This is for the man who wants for nothing, who loves to wear knits on his face, and has always desired the epic facial hair of a Viking Warrior. This is a fun, quick knit that will ensure the Warrior’s face stays warm during even the most arctic Minnesotan winters. Have fun!
