I wanted to make a blindfold for a friend, but I can't exactly sew nice curves, so knitting it was! I do find that knitting just one layer doesn't suffice to fully shut out light, and often you can still see a bit, so I needed two layers. I had another go at double knitting, so I'd be sure both layers were the same size (no tension difference!) and also so I wouldn't need to stitch them together. It's a bit tricky with the increases, as you need to reorder stitches, but I made it worked. Really happy with how it turned out!

That looks so comfortable to wear...most of the ones I've seen didn't fit right but this looks like it would be real snug.  What pattern did you use?

It's adapted from this (single knit) Ravelry pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sleep-mask-3
