Well, this is what I’ve been up to…


And I’m sorry, but I’m a sucker for a good pun.

This pattern is entirely seamless – the ears are worked by picking up stitches, and there’s a little grafting at the front – instructions for which are given in the pattern.

As per my previous mask patterns, I’ve used an aran weight yarn with 4mm needles. The pattern gives two sizes – standard (19″ to 23″) and extra large (24″ and up).

  1. […] is probably where this ram’s head balaclava, above, goes, or, as she calls it, a “baalaclava.” For those of you who work needles […]

  2. That is absolutely brilliant. Well done! x

  3. That’s amazing! How difficult is it to do? My wife has recently taken up knitting, and I am not sure how to determine whether this is beyond her skills.

    • It’s not terribly difficult – if your wife can knit in the round, pick up stitches and work kitchener stitch, she’ll have no trouble with it! There’s no seaming.

      (And actually, if she can’t graft/work kitchener stitch, the instructions for that are in the pattern, too.)

  4. That actually looks really good. No doubt ye could do a plain lamb’s one with just the eyes, and without the horns?
