Knights Chainmail pattern

My boys (dad included) are very into knights and dragons, etc… right now. Well, they have been for a very long time so I feel it’s time for me to try to make them some chain mail costumes. Something that won’t fall apart like the plastic, Halloween stuff does.

Where can I find a pattern for some knights costumes. Nothing major maybe just the part that drapes over the head and shoulders. Maybe a pattern for a sheath for their swords.

Any ideas? Any books I can look at? I’d even buy the patterns, if I could find them but free would be great too!

Thanks for any help!


This should give you a place to start:-):

Really great. Thanks. has a free pattern for a crown. maybe you could attach it to a ski or bike mask, get a crowned helmet?

There’s a pattern for a helmet and shirt here
