Having recently knitted some bright pink hats, I decided to play fair and knitted a balaclava with some grey wool left over from a recent project. I added three stripes in a variegated grey yarn to add some interest and because I really like this yarn. I bought it a couple of years ago from an enterprising lady who was selling items from her front room. The plain grey yarn came to me in a bargain joblot and is very soft. This will be a warm and comfortable hat.
This balaclava should fit a child aged 3-4 years. It is from this very easy balaclava pattern. I have knitted several of these in the past and never cease to be amazed at how little yarn is needed. 100g of dk yarn is more than enough to knit two of the age 3-4 years size. This one will be going off very soon to Operation Orphan.
