Sierra Balaclava is knit from top down on circular needles.

You will start by working the top of the hood flat in stockinette stitch.

Then, you will pick up and knit stitches from the sides of the top and continue knitting flat in ''U-shape'' until your hood reaches the correct length.

After this, new stitches are casted under the chin. The work is joined in the round and the neck is worked in 1:1 rib (k1, p1).

To finish, you will work a 1:1 rib edge to frame the face.


Enjoy this pattern and happy knitting!
