Roman legion? Or valiant knight?

This is the hat mentioned in my previous post. I think it looks like a mix of the two – what do you think?

Another easy and basic hat pattern out of my head that I added the extended neck piece to and then topped it off with a ‘plume’; it sort of looks like a ridge of metal or where some bristles would have been inserted by a Roman soldier.  The face guard comes in very handy for this person because they cycle a lot and it protects the face from the cold.

And as an added bonus, our little grandsons (one modelling the far too big for him hat) think they can use it as a real knights helmet and go into battle – on their scooters of course!
