I made a balaclava/ski mask for DD1 today. Miss M is studying polar explorers in school and in a couple of weeks they are having a Polar Exploration Day where they have to design a Survival Kit and spend the day in tents in the school grounds. She is very much looking forward to it! So we were in need of a balaclava, one internet search later and I found this helpful tutorial with 3 types of fleece hats. Miss M has a large head for a 7 year old so I made a medium version C. We bought some fleece from the fabric shop and away we went.
Printed out the pattern and cut out the correct size, the larger piece needs to be cut on the fold and 4 smaller pieces are needed.
