Girlie Ninja Mask

I am really pleased that I have finished my first ski/ninja mask.  Here are some pictures of it in action:




In all honestly it is too big for her.  I like to always tell myself better a bit too big than a bit too small, so I'm losing any sleep over it.  I haven't washed it yet, and I'm hoping (in vain probably) it will tighten up a bit.  The gussets could be better too, but for a first attempt I'm pleased.

Here's the info:
Pattern: Wee balaclava
Wool: the pinks are both Wendy Mode Chunky, 50% merino 50% acrylic.  The cream wool is Lion Brand Wool-Ease, 20% wool, 80% acrylic.
What I learned: the provisional crochet cast on.  It was awesome!  I can see a lot of uses for this, so I'm pretty pleased.

  4. It looks so cute! Like you say, better a little too big than too small, just means she'll get more use out of it!

  8. Oh, I'm going to need one of these for the winter. I like that it's in girly colours, so unexpected and fun for a balaclava! And the ribbed edge looks fantastic. I hope it does tighten up a bit when you wash it for a better fit. :)

  13. Did you plan for the purple in the hat to correspond with her ski jacket? It's very cute. I think Tech Knitter has some tips for fixing up a hat that's too big on her website!
