Yes - where in the helmet liner are you? My third one is drying now. When I knit them, the necks seem like they would be too tight, but they open up well when our 18yo son tries them on for my file pics.
I use Cascade 220 also. I make the neck ribbing 7 3/4 in long and still have yarn left over. For the above the eyes part, I use a provisional cast on cause I don't like picking up stitches. I cast on the 59 sts which leaves me with 60 live sts. These with the 52 already there at the bottom give me 112 (divisible by 4) for the 2x2 ribbing round the eyes. On the first, I did a regular 2x2 ribbing cast off. The last two I did the Russian bind off. Is stretchy, but next time I want to do the kitchener bind off. After I learn how.
I made the first for a family friend who was to be re-deployed to Iraq when it was cold. It's a year later than expected, but he's going to be there in probably one week. The other two are donations.
Hope all goes well.
pez-dispenser! You're right!!
