Knitting kit for November Balaclava for kids and babies by PetiteKnit i Önling No 1 + Silk mohair

The November Balaclava Mini is worked from the top down in fisherman’s rib. First, a square is worked for the top of the head. Then stitches are picked up and knitted along the sides of the square and the balaclava is worked back and forth to under the chin, where it is joined in the round. At the end, a rib edge is worked around the face opening.
The balaclava has a great fit, as it covers the ears, but not the forehead or sides of the face. Note that the measurements given for the finished balaclava are for after it has been washed. The hat should be washed before wearing as the fisherman’s rib grows giving the hat the correct size.
Begin by working a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge. Wash and block the swatch before taking any measurements.

Sizes: 0-1 (1-2) 2-7 years
Head circumference: 44-46 (46-49) 49-54 cm

Materials:
This kit does not contain the original yarn used by PetiteKnit, but carefully selected yarn that matches the gauge.

100(100)100 g Önling No 1, 75% Merino Superfine Super 100s Wool and 25% Angora, 50 g = approximately 180m
25(25)25 g Önling No 10, 70% Mohair, 30% Silk, 25 g = approximately 210m

Gauge: 16 sts x 36 rows = 10 x 10 cm in fisherman’s rib on 4.5 mm needles before washing; the equivalent of 14 sts x 36 rows = 10 x 10 cm in fisherman’s rib on 4.5 mm needles after washing, as fisherman’s rib grows with washing and wear.
(note that 36 rows in fisherman’s rib are counted as 18 knit sts).

Circular needles: 4.5 mm / 40 and 80 cm

Please Note:
The price of the yarn kit is calculated based on the amount of yarn included, which is the amount we have used to knit the design according to the above measurements. Should you need more yarn, additional yarn can be purchased at regular prices by placing an order and state lot number in the comment box at checkout. All designs have been thoroughly calculated and tested.

Washing instructions for your knitwear
Wool can last for years, but it requires good care. Washing is tough on your woolen garments and in general wool needs to be washed much less than other materials as it has a self-cleaning effect. Often it is enough to hang your woolen sweater / garment outside in the humid weather or bring it with you into the bathroom, when you take a long, hot shower - the steam will often be enough to freshen it up it and remove any unwanted odors.

Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Everyday Kit
Neither Önling No 12 nor No 13, is pre-washed when you receive it on cones. You get the best result if you soak your finished knitted garment in lukewarm water for approx. 2 hours. Then wash the garment as you would otherwise with washing detergent for wool, either by hand or on a wool program in your washing machine. Dry it by laying it flat.

Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Silk kit
As the Silk Kit from Önling contains 3 different qualities (linen, wool and silk), we recommend that you always wash your silk sweater / garment by hand, to avoid it changing shape or appearance during wash. The three qualities will react differently to water, temperatures, etc. Önling can not take responsibility for the result if you wash your silk sweater in the washing machine. Your garment made from the silk kit should NOT be spun or tumble dried. Instead, dry it by laying it flat.
