I highly recommend this pattern, even just as a neck gaitor - I think I would use it this way, not combined with the balaclava. I do not think the nylon trim is necessary. You can get the same results using a stretch zig zag on your regular machine. Finally, a great place to get lycra nylon trim is www.clotilde.com.

galadriel45 - Perhaps this is an impertinent question.....would you recommend this pattern if you were only going to make the neck gaitor, or would you recommend just measuring a neck gaitor and going from there. I live in Tucson, so I can't see using a baklava, but I like neck gaitors for my morning walk (I have the thinnest blood on earth!!) Also, does the lycra trim make a difference in the finished product - I don't have a working serger. Finally, is there an internet source for the nylon lycra trim? Thanks for the review, I am inspired to sew some of these.
