This is a Russian inspired design. It can be worn as a hat or pulled down over the face. It's great for walking the dog or a quick jaunt when you don't want to put on a lot of stuff. Also known as a ski mask.

That's a very good looking design with beautiful cables. You'll be the best-dressed dog walker, for sure!

Wow! I had no idea a ski mask could look so classy! But yours certainly is lovely and the cables take it up a notch. "Balaclava" or "ski mask" is too mundane of a description for this beauty!

Ohhhhh, this is the nicest balaclava I've ever seen! Wow! Very fresh looking and beautiful!

I provided a pattern link for this. The yarn called for is a bit out of my league pricewise. And probably hard to find in my area. I substituted with Bernat Premium yarn. I guess this is a new one that's just been out since the fall of 2011. It's a worsted weight acrylic. I'm very impressed with it. It knits up like a dream, doesn't split, and it has a shine to it. I would definitely recommend this yarn. I got it at Walmart, but they're being obstinant. First they had it, now last time when I went they didn't. I may end up having to buy this online in the future.

That looks very warm! I like the pattern, too!

Nice. I've never seen one with cables.

I like it, I like it a lot. You really do such lovely work. I wish the Walmart near me carried Bernat yarns.
