The balaclava is one of this season’s biggest musthaves. The clever combination of hat and collar keeps both neck and head warm, while looking super chic.
Balaclava No. 2 is worked top down in a delicate and classic cabled pattern.
4.5 mm [US 7] circular needles (40 and 60 or 80 cm [16 and 24 or 32 inches])
In cabled pattern using 4.5 mm [US 7] needles.
18 sts / 24 rows = 10 x 10 cm [4 x 4 inches]
Note! The cabled pattern expands in wash and use.
The gauge before washing is approx. 21 sts / 25 rows using 4.5 mm [US 7] needles.
It is therefore particularly important to work a swatch and wash it before beginning the work.
The balaclava is as such also washed before use to obtain the right fit.
