Gambit Balaclava is a warm balaclava made from wonderful, Norwegian wool and a chess pattern – a fun project to knit! The balaclava is designed so that it doesn’t reach the face. The smaller size is placed even further in the back than the larger size. Other than that the sizes are identical. Work Gambit balaclava as follows: Cast on stitches at the forehead and work the top of the balaclava. Cut the yarn and pick up stitches along the sides. Work the sides top down to your desired length. Wash the balaclava so that the pattern can unfold neatly. 


The pictured balaclava is worked in Rauma Vams 36 and 00, size adult small.
