For the complete free pattern:
Several years ago, I knit two balaclavas, one each for my sons. When I had them finished my husband liked them so much I adjusted the pattern to make him one too.
Recently, a young priest visited us. He loved the balaclava too. So I told him I would make him one. Since I prefer crochet instead of knitting, I used my husbands hat for the measurements to create one in crochet.
