The Baby Bear Balaclava is a cute children’s balaclava with rounded bear ears.
Worked with two strands together at a small gauge and fitting snugly around the face and neck, it makes a nice and warm accessory for those colder months (and one that the littlest ones won’t be able to pull off easily!).
For extra warmth and softness the Baby Bear Balaclava is designed to be worked with a strand of merino and a strand of mohair held together, except for the face band, to ensure that no fluffy fibres get too close to the child’s face.
The Baby Bear Balaclava is worked in one piece, both in the round and back and forth, and uses short row shaping. Two neck options are included for a ribbed neckband or an extended neck warmer.
