nålbound wool hat for largesse

I was asked to make a hat for Kingdom largesse, as we have a Norse King and Queen being coronated this weekend at An Tir 12th Night, and they would like to have some nålbound items to give away during their reign. While there are no extant examples of nålbound hats in the Viking period (there are lots of socks and mittens), they are really popular with Norse folks in the SCA. If you’ve ever worn a cozy wool nålbound hat, you’ll know why! Hopefully someone will be happy to receive this one.
