My brother is in search of the perfect balaclava which he can roll back into a beanie hat. I knitted this one as a tester to see if it meets what he wants and to make any adjustments before knitting another in the yarn and colour of his choice.
Notes: I knitted the neck ribbing about 3cm longer. For the ribbing round the eyehole I used a 40cm 4mm circular needle. To make the centre join I did not cast off the centre 4 stitches top and bottom and cast them off together.
