I can't find a pattern for what I want anywhere, probably because I can't figure out what to call it.  I want something my husband can pull over his head, that comes down and covers his neck, too, kind of like a long ski mask only with the whole face part open.  Does that make any sense?  I was going to crochet him a hooded scarf, but I got to thinking that the whole long scarf part just adds bulk, and you have to mess with the scarf coming undone, etc.  So why not just the hood part, only connected at the bottom to stay in place around the neck.  I'll probably just end up winging it, but I thought I'd see if anyone else has already invented the wheel.

What do you think of the ribbed ski hat?

That seems to be the closest thing to what you described.  There is also a similar pattern at Hip Vintage Crochet, too.

Good luck and don't forget to post a picture! Smiley

Hmm... the thing that immediately jumped to my mind is this balaclava:

I have a feeling it's not quite what you were thinking of, though.  Cheesy  Maybe you could leave out the openings for the ears?

Thank you so much for all three of those patterns, they're all very helpful!  I'm looking to make a somewhat looser version I think, but they will definitely help with my design ideas!  I'll post a picture when it's done.

There's also this convertible balaclava from knitty:
(Though I think perhaps another color than the one shown would be more manly Smiley

That pattern from Knitty is way cool, I love it!  For my husband, definitely not the pink, though Smiley.  I want to make one for myself and my two daughters now, too bad we live in Las Vegas and would only wear it the once a year we go sledding up in the mountains.  Maybe I'll make one for my aunt in Maine...

LMAO! That's gotta be the goofiest thing I've seen. I love the ear holes.
