This pattern is available for $6.00 USD buy it now

gauge: 17st in 4inches (10cm).

You will need Aran weight yarn and knitting needles in the right size to obtain gauge (gauge varies from person to person - just like handwriting!), and a tapestry needle or crochet hook to weave in the yarn ends and also the same tapestry needle to graft stitches at the back of the bonnet (that is easy - link to awesome grafting tutorial inside the pattern!)

one part of the balaclava is knit flat, the other part is knit in the round. you will need either a long circular needle (magic loop knitting! yes, and there is a link to an awesome magic loop knitting too!) or five double pointed needles (i have done all the math - there it says how many stitches on each needle works best!) for the part that is knit in the round. for the flat part you can use any length circular needles or any single pointed or long Afghan needles.
