What is a Crochet Balaclava?

Crochet balaclavas are handmade, warm and comfortable winter accessories that cover the head, neck and face. They are great for keeping you warm and cozy in cold weather.

How to Crochet a Balaclava

To crochet a balaclava hood, you will need a few supplies like yarn, a crochet hook and one of the free crochet patterns below.

  • Yarn: The best yarn to crochet a balaclava is one that will keep you cozy warm, like a bulky five weight or super bulky 6 weight. But keep in mind, this can be crocheted with any size yarn you wish.
  • Crochet Hook: The most common hook size used for a five or six weight yarn is a 9 or 10 mm crochet hook. You can use whatever hook size you’d like. I suggest reading the yarn label of the yarn you pick for the crochet hook size that is recommended
  • Scissors: A nice pair of yarn scissors are great for cutting yarn ends when required.
    • A pair of rainbow stork scissors is my go to.
  • Tapestry Needle: You will need this to weave in the yarn ends once you are done crocheting your balaclava.
