Antifreeze pattern for 10 yo
My little brother wants a ski mask in the worst way, so he's getting one for Christmas. I'm having a hard time finding a youth sized pattern, and I found Antifreeze in KNitty.

http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTantifreeze.html/]

It seems to be pretty tight-fitting, but do you think it would work for a 10 yo? When he tried on an adult hat I made for me the face opening was way too big, and this face opening seems to be the same size, although the hat itself is smaller.
What should I do? Does anyone know of a youth sized pattern out there?
TIA!

Better Link
The above link didn't work (too many extras at end of address)... here is one that should (hopefully) work better.

Is there a way to adjust the number of stitches to make it smaller? Different yarn? Different needles?

I had a link for a child version, but I'll have to find it... off to look..

Well, turns out they were for a younger child. I'll link them anyway because sometimes if you see how it's made you can do your own.

I also found this one, but there doesn't seem to be a picture. I hate patterns without pictures!

I found when looking that they are called hoods, balaclava or helmets so if you want to search more..

Thanks for all the help! After looking at the links, I think if I make Antifreeze a little shorter from the bottom to the face opening it should work.
