!! Something for the cold, cold winter !!

We all wear hats, gloves, stylish coats, and even snow boots sometimes, but what is the best solution for full facial coverage? Surely not those hideous neoprene ski masks that became popular in the 80s (though they are a proven aid to weight loss). Why not try something more horrifying, like the mask in the above picture and its other varieties, all taken from a 1965 issue of McCall’s Needlework and Craft? The best part: you knit it yourself and, if you like, add features such as a zipper over the mouth hole.
