FO: Balaclava

Filed under:Finished Objects,Hats,Knitting Olympics — Aileen @ 10:00

Pattern: From Russia with Love via Craftzine.

Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, 3 balls (almost exactly – I had about 5m left over).

Needles: 4.5mm 40cm circular and a 4mm crochet hook for the opening.

Verdict: Very snug. Very!



  1. That balaclava is gorgeous. The cables are fab, I love the clean lines of them and the row of stockinette down the back. Yum.

  10. Hi, I am making this same item from the same pattern, but I don’t understand the bind off for the opening (I’m a bit new to knitting). Do you have any links to tutorials, videos, etc that would clearly explain how to bind off the face opening? This is the last step in the instructions and I’m stuck! Thank you
