Loomed Ski Mask Pattern
By Wanda Jean LaChevet 2008

Sample was loomed using 7oz red heart super saver medium (4)ply
Bulkier yarn recommended for very cold areas.
Picture shown was done using basic e-wrap (1 over 1)

Tools needed:
Green knifty knitter round loom
Tapestry Needle
Loom tool

Gauge: not important

Working with 2 strands of yarn as 1 doing Basic E-wrap.

Step 1:
Knitting all the way around… leaving a tail long enough to weave in later using 2 strands of yarn held as one, cast on to the loom using the E-wrap cast on. E-wrap and knit off in single stitch (1 over 1) for a total of 7 rows.

Step 2: Making the brim
You will be performing a cuffed brim by bringing the cast on loops back up to place on the pegs again and knit off the bottom loop over the top. (You will not be doing any wrapping for this process.) You can hide your beginning tail by sandwiching it in between the two layers before knitting off.

Step 3:
Using the double stitch (1 over 2), E-wrap in the round, for 40 rows.

Step 4:
This step is making the opening for the eyes.

On pegs 1-11 perform the flat removal method adding a chain between each loop.

Step 5
Top of the mask

Starting at peg 12 working as a flat panel E-wrap pegs 12 - 36 then back to 12. You will have 3 loops on each peg.
Knit off using the double stitch (1 over 2). Continue for 5 rows.
When done you should be back on peg 12.

Step 6
Starting at peg 12 working in the round using the double stitch (1 over 2) all the way around the loom.
You will notice that at the top of the opening in the mask you won't have a double stitch. This is the way it is supposed to be.
Continue working in the round for 35 rows.

Remove from loom using the gathered bind off method. Weave in tail on inside.

Hi Can you tell me the gauge of your ski mask? I am trying to make one on a Kiss Loom and knowing your gauge would really help. I picked a charcoal gray color also. I will wear mine under my helmet till it get warm enough for motorcycle riding.

Thank you so much,

Hi Coyote, As I stated in the pattern the guage isn't important.
Not familiar with how to set the guage on a kiss loom. I made this on the green round KK loom.
Just set gauge the same as hats you've made on the kiss. That should work.

I'm thinking of making a modified one of these for myself. I've got asthma and breathing the cold air in winter tends to set it off. Being able to have something over my mouth and nose would be great. However, I don't actually like to wear hats, so I'd modify it with a "hat brim" at the top edge above the eyes to be a headband/ear warmer kind of thing.
