The Everyday Balaclava is worked from the top down in stockinette stitch. First a square is worked for the top of the head. Then stitches are picked up and knitted along both sides of the square and short rows are worked to round the top of the balaclava. After this decreases are worked along the face opening. The balaclava is then worked straight down and then joined to be worked in the round below the chin before it is split into front and back, which are worked in rib. At the end a folded rib edge is worked along the face opening.
The blue Monday Balaclava is knitted in Organic Wool 2 by Krea Deluxe in the color 25.

Measure the head circumference of the child to determine which size to knit. The sizes are the approx. equivalent to the ages 2-4 months (4-6 months) 6-12 months (1-2 years) 2-5 years (5-9 years) – but as head size can vary a lot from child to child, I recommend measuring the head circumference of the child.
Fits head circumference: 39-41 (41-44) 44-47 (48-50) 50-54 (54-55) cm [15¼ -16¼ (16¼-17¼) 17¼-18½ (18½-19) 19-21¼ (21¼-21¾) inches]
