That sounds very much like what we would call a "balaclava helmet".

Hallo farant [i don`t know another name ?]
do you also crochet leg warmers ?
mirjam


No, don't do legwarmers. We actually wear boots here in the winter
(Canada) and legwarmers just aren't that convenient, IMHO.

The baby sweater I started was the February one from Knitters'
Almanac. It's become a standby baby gift and now everyone expects
it. Rather the victim of my own success.

It looks a lot like my hat , but i add a longer for part which i knit
as a trinale , which can be tucked under the shirt opening for added
warmth to the neck, and a smaller triangle at the back so it stays in
the shirt .
also i think my `eye opening` is a bit smaller .. but i might be wrong
about that .
mirjam
ps i start mine at the middle of the head and knit downwards .

That made me laugh! I've never tried! I'm such an impatient knitter,
I'm not sure I can labour through two at a time. I need to get to the
end product relatively quickly!

Though the more I think about it... Neat idea. I shall have to try a
couple like that. I am down to the last sleeve on the one I was
making. The intended recipient is a co-worker and this is for a
little grandaughter who is being born in March if all goes well. Now
she has announced that she is going to be a grandmother again just a
couple of months later by her daughter-in-law! It's baby time again!
