This is a pattern PDF for a Granny Square Balaclava. It has full instructions with photos, charts and a video tutorial
The funky balaclava is a unique and cosy way to keep yourself warm during chilly weather.
The crochet granny square balaclava pattern has a knit collar and face band – both worked on a set of 4 double pointed needles. I recommend using bamboo needles.
Perfect for adults and kids from 1 year, the pattern combines the classic style of a balaclava with the timeless charm of the granny square.
Once complete, your unique handmade balaclava will be both practical and stylish, with the classic look of a cosy winter accessory and the fun and flair of the crochet granny square.
Wear it on your next winter walk, ski trip, cycling or just while running errands on a chilly day.
It would make a great Birthday or Christmas gift for friends or family.
