The balaclava is easy to make, with intermediate knitters in mind.

Using knit and purl stitches, you will create ribbing, then use decreases and increases to make the main body of the piece.

This balaclava will be super cozy to wear in the cold weather.


3 x Drops Eskimo Print - 27 Rust Print.
Any bulky yarn (05) or super bulky (06).


8mm (US 11) 16" circular knitting needles.
If you feel the 40cm/16" cable is too short, then this can be knit using a 60cm/24" cable.
For the decreases, you will have to use the magic loop technique.
