It's the snowboarding/ski mask? I am about 75% finished and wondered how it was working for you? I'm worried about the back of the head length being too long. Undecided Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I made this! I totally love mine. It's made riding a bike in the winter bearable.

I didn't notice any problem with the back of the head being too long on mine. In fact I added length in the ribbing around the neck so I could tuck it farther into my jacket. I remember thinking as I worked on it that the head looked huge, but that all kind of works out in the end when you do short rows on top and then add rows around the face to bring it together. The only thing that I wish that I had done differently would be to have (after picking up stitches around the face) added more rows around the face so it fit tighter there. As it is now, it's a bit loose and the bottom part kind of falls below my mouth. That's cool if I want to talk to someone while wearing it but not so great when I'm riding because I had to keep pulling it up.

I hope I've helped!

I know it's been a while, but I'm in the middle of Antifreeze now myself.  I have a question about the wrap and turn step.  Since you move the stitch, put the yarn around, then move it back, and turn the work,  it doesn't get knitted or purled at this step, does it? 

Thanks for any clarification. It's a new technique to me, and I didn't see it on knittinghelp when I checked there at the beginning of the pattern. 


Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!
