A pale grey acrylic yarn was chosen, Stylecraft Special DK, shade 1099 Grey.
|By pulling the balaclava over the head, with the head passing|
through the gap for the eyes, it can be
transformed into a neckwarmer/cowl.
Another friend asked if I could make her a mask to protect her face for when she was riding her bike. The instructions for the balaclava were followed up until the start of the eye opening when all the stitches were cast off. The yarn was supplied by my friend. Knitting essentials DK, shade 991-30, Black Sparkle.
The same friend then requested a black balaclava made in the same yarn as the mask and following the same pattern as for the grey one.
Both friends said that they were pleased with their winter warmers.
