Today I learned a new word – Balaclava. Webster defines it as “a warm hat that covers the head, neck, and most of the face”. In my world we call it a ski cap.
I used some Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in Tea Leaf Green with size 8 needles to cast of 72 stitches. I did alter the pattern in the decrease section of the hat. I disliked how the original changed to a stockinette for the decrease. So I used the ribbed decrease I used on the Mock Cable Hat (minus the cable stitch) to create a ribbed decrease.
You can find the original free pattern here.
Update: the pattern location has moved and can know be found here.
