[This pattern was given in a section called ‘Aunt Kate’s Postbag’, evidently in response to a request from a reader.]
A Balaclava Helmet.
[These instructions are very different from the helmet pattern given in a previous post here. This helmet has the front and back flaps, which the other did not, and the shaping seems very different in this case. It seems that Balaclava helmets were not official issue, and so there was not standard pattern.]
