Yup, I’m sure you can guess what’s next. Three kids, two completed balaclavas….totally unequal equation. So of course it means that like a good little knitter mommy I spent my weekend knitting up the perfect lid for my biggest boy. Who just happens to be a Pittsburg penguins lover.
I did a few mods on my now go-to balaclava pattern. First, chunky wool. Berroco vintage chunky to be specific. Yum yum yum! I cast on as specified, knit my 8 inches, then I cast on an extra 8 stitches for the hat forehead. What can I say, my kids got an adult noggin!
