We may have, ever so slightly, gotten a little bit balaclava obsessed over here at YAK recently! This winter accessory is the newest trend and we’ve been seeing so many amazing designs out there. To celebrate our new favourite item we thought we’d run a fun little KAL, whilst also sharing some amazing inspiration to show you how versatile these winter accessories can be!
Trust us, by the end of this blog post you’ll be wanting a balaclava too!
For a classic balaclava with a bit of fluff then the Hilly Hood by Anne Ventzel is the pattern to go for! Knitted from the top down with a DK wool held with a lace weight mohair this hood will definitely keep you snuggly and warm.
DIY balaclavas are all over Instagram and we are loving the creativity and inspiration! Here’s just a few of our favourites:
We’ve become so determined to knit our own balaclavas we thought it’d be nice to run an informal KAL so everybody could join in on the fun.
We’ll be updating on our weekly progress in our Instagram stories as well as sharing our favourites! Tag us and use the hashtag #YAKBalaclavaKAL to be featured.
Until Next Time… Happy Knitting!
