Balaclavas are quite popular in Denmark because of the cold weather. We call them “elefanthuer”, so elephant hats. This one is made for child and adult sizes, because everyone need something to keep their head warm this winter.

BTW if anyone is interested in translating this pattern I would love to hear from you :-)


I would love to see your projects on my Facebook page or Instagram too.
