Mushishi Yarn Balaclava

Phil asked me a couple months ago to make him another Balaclava (hunting hat/facemask) in camo colors (greens, browns blacks, etc.).  I found Mushishi yarns by Plymouth Yarn Co. in the Evergreen #08 colorway and thought it was perfect.  It's a worsted weight yarn but so very soft and easy to knit with.

I again used the Helmet Liner knitting instructions at Ravelry.  It's a very easy, straightforward knit which calls for size 6 and size 8 knitting needles either double pointed needles or circulars.  I used size 8 circulars for the entire hat and it fits him perfectly.

I would definitely buy this yarn again!
