I'm looking for a (hopefully, free, but not absolutely necessary) pattern for a basic ski mask (snowboarding mask, balaclava, etc.) that can be made in several sizes for older children to adults of either sex; the kind with opening(s) for eyes and mouth. I found a few online, but nothing "exactly" like what I have in mind, which I suppose would be the kind one thinks of a burglar wearing. I don't plan to knit for burglars, though!

Daughter's family recently moved to South Dakota and she said my grandchildren are shoveling in blowing snow and would welcome more of Grandma's hand-knit items to keep them warm, especially ski masks.

Thanks for any help.

I made this one, though the little stinker lost it. Mine is here.

Kelly, this is what I'm looking for ... thank you very much! So, I'm guessing from the pictures, how much of one's face is exposed just depends on how far up one chooses to pull the front of the neck/chin part. For a teen, would you figure I can just use one size smaller needle rather than change the numbers?

Sincerely,


Donna

My son's head (he's 13) is the same size as mine, and the ribbing is stretchy, so I just worked the pattern as written. At least I think I did. Yes, what is exposed depends on how you wear it, and you could also adjust the cast off/cast on numbers to adjust the size of the slit, if you like.

That reminds me... here's what not to make: http://stitchymcyarnpants.com/moks06/?p=223

Another choice for a Halloween-loving teen: bokaclava

I made this one for my son who rides his bike to work in Portland OR - he likes the fact that it has holes for his helmet to buckle thru:

It does cover the mouth, though.
