Dwarven Helm by SadDaysCrochet Dwarven Helm by SadDaysCrochet
This is a present for my brother, because he is the best brother. I wanted to finish it in time for the opening of The Hobbit, but alas I was too slow.

This was hugely inspired by the work of :icondrgibbs:, and if you like this at all you should check out her gallery.

The helm I based directly on the helm that Gimli wears in the Lord of the Rings movies, the beard was my own design with massive creative input from my brother.

That's me wearing it- I'd get him to wear it, but he is far away.

Helm has a lovely fleece interior and beard attaches and detaches with large snaps. The rest is mithril. ;)


Edit:
Holy wow! This has exploded across the internet. So in the spirit of shameless self-promotion, check me out on other social media!

This. This is the best beard-toque ever. 

Though it looks like it isn't easy on yarn supplies. How many balls of yarn did you use just for the beard?

Have you completed the pattern yet?  I checked your Etsy but it wasn't listed - I'm sorry to hear about your poor health and hope you are feeling better.  Please let me know when you have completed the pattern would love to get it!:happybounce:

I found this image a while back, saw it again today and decided to search for it which led me to you! This hat is incredible!! I don't crotchet but would be willing to learn to make this! I would love to wear it to the next two movies at midnight!! Is this also how I RSVP? I am new to this site. Do you send an email when the pattern is available? Thanks for making this. Your artistry is remarkable!!

I'm not sure how to RSVP but however I do I have to because I have family members that crochet and I need one of these. I have the beardhat barbarian/viking one but this destroys it any day cant wait.

RSVP taken into account! I'm afraid my health is delaying the production of a pattern enormously, but it will be done some day (my current goal is for it to be in time for the next movie?). Crochet is great for relieving stress, and can be done while watching television! This way you can feel like you've accomplished something after a marathon of your favorite show. Maybe you should both take up crochet!

No bother at all! I'm feeling really bad about how long it's taking me- I know I've been promising the pattern since December! I really have started working on it, but then my health kinda went to hell for a while and I was in the hospital for a bit. Anyway, that is nothing you have to worry about- I'm back now and plan to get back to work on it tomorrow. My goal is to have it all done before the end of May! Sooner if at all possible!

I do not, but I am working on a pattern that should be out by next month, and once that is complete I'm sure someone would be happy to use the pattern to sell you one! I'll tell you when it's done. :)

Thank you! It is awesome! I am new here to deviant art. I work mostly in leather and leather armor, though lately I have been making shields and doing high detail paintings and skaldic verse poetry. But I am a HUGE Tolkien dwarf fan!

OMG! I finally found the creator of this awesome helm! I found the photo on google and my husband and six of my friend's demanded I make them one for Christmas should I find the pattern. Please tell me you are selling the pattern. I am so excited that I found you. Even if you are not selling the pattern, just the hats, my friends will be happy to know they can buy one at least. :) AWESOME JOB!

Gosh- I'm glad you tracked me down! I have now started putting my url on images, so hopefully in future it won't be so difficult to find me! I'll be starting work on the pattern any minute now. I was actually planning to start Monday, but I got sick. So next week, probably, and then I'll release it as soon as it's done. And I'll make sure to send you a note about it! :dance:
