What to knit for a brother who is notoriously difficult to craft for? Hmm… in lieu of a gorgeous blonde, I decided on something that would keep him warm outdoors. (vs. indoors? There is a tasteless joke there somewhere.)
Cody is a Colorado outdoorsman. He’s a hunter, archer, fisherman, snowboarder, skiier, hiker, runner, cyclist and dog-owner. All that time in the cold — at times with weaponry involved — led me to the Helmetliner pattern. It helps that the signature orange “watch out and don’t shoot me!” color is the same as the Denver Broncos — another favorite.
I got the idea from the Balaclava we included in a CRAFT along post a few months ago, minus the tricky and underappreciated-by-my-brother cables. Not perfect, but close enough and I am hoping he’ll love it.
