"Helius" a wool hat
Helius a wool hat
HELIUS (or Helios) was the Titan god of the sun. He was also the guardian of oaths and the god of the gift of sight. Helios was described as a handsome god crowned with the shining aureole of the Sun, who drove the chariot of the sun across the sky each day to earth-circling Oceanus and through the world-ocean returned to the East at night. Helius is a simple Tapestry Crochet hat with lots of character.
This hat is an addition to my gods, goddesses and titans series that honors our human existence. Helius crown was the inspiration for this hat, as I seek to express it with Tapestry Crochet. You can adjust the size of the hat by using different hook sizes and or yarn.
