Opened face ski mask?
Hi All! Iím not sure what to call it but Iím looking to make this for my 3 & 2 year olds. The best that I can describe it would be a neck warmer with a hood. But I would like a hood to cover his whole forehead. Or it can be describe as ski mask with the whole face opened. Since I donít know what to call it I donít even know how to search it on the Internet.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

check the cover of the new fall vogue knit.1 magazine- it has a grown up one, and I bet you could size it down for a kid!

Yes something like that. Now if I knew how to downsize and add more to the front to cover more of their forehead I would be golden!

I'm looking at the pattern and they call in a helmet. maybe that would help the search?

KPC has 2 vingtage ones: balaclava helmet and balaclavas

that link has several styles

and this one is cute and might be easier to modify:

toddler hat
Hey I saw this last week, when I signed up here and thought I'd try that toddler hat. I am so lost in the decress part where you shape the top of the head. Am I reading it wrong? Even if I draw it out I get a really short thing on one side and a long thing on the other side. Where it says repeat till 14 stiches remain do you repeat the last 3 rows or the last 2 rows? I think the pattern might be wrong but I am a self taught fairly new knitter so I don't really know.

Usually you do a dec row, then a plain row, then dec, plain, etc. I don't know which pattern you're using specifically to know how it's worded.
