2020 has been a rough year for a lot of people, and so we’re popping in with an unscheduled freebie to hopefully make your day today!
The Sailor Gaiter is a classic knit, stretch neck gaiter. It is super useful for everyday situations (think: bicycling, working out, general accessorizing, etc.)!
**If you’re planning on using this as a face covering, per your local mandated requirements, please review the guidelines provided by the CDC. This face covering is intended for general public use only and is not intended as a replacement for medical grade PPE.
You can wear it a ton of different ways for your own style and whatever you’re doing at the time. Some of the most popular ways are as a face covering, headband, around your neck, (the tall option) hat/beanie, and more.
We also added a ear loop option to help keep it on and up for those doing activities moving around a lot.
You can line it for a 2 layer option or just use 1 layer and hem the edges.
**If you choose the double layered option, you might want to consider sizing up, as it can start to get a bit tight with those extra layers!
The Sailor Gaiter is a perfect scrap buster! It takes very little fabric, and very little time to put together! All you need is some high stretch knit and you’ll be on your way. Our favorite fabric types for the gaiters were cotton lycra/spandex and athletic knits.
With five sizes in this quick and easy pattern, you can create a Sailor Gaiter for everyone from child to large adult.
What are you waiting for? Go grab the pattern now! SAILOR GAITER FREE PATTERN And then be sure to head over to our Facebook Group, or to tag us on Instagram so we can see what you made!
We hope this freebie helps make 2020 just a little smoother for you and yours.

I really wish you all included a pattern placement on your patterns. This is the second pattern I’ve had to recut because it doesn’t say where to place the pattern. 🙁

Thank you SO much for offering this for free. I had seen the style that has the ear straps and thought that would be perfect for when my son goes back to school. He’s on the spectrum, and requires a fair amount of 1:1 support so I think he’ll be receiving some in-person instruction before any official reopening. (My daughter OTOH, will be starting kindergarten online. I’m still belly-laughing over that one, lol!) Being adverse to certain sensory factors, masks have been a trigger point for him. I think if he has something he can keep around his neck, he may feel more control over it, if that makes any sense at all. I bet I can find some sort of performance fabric to help with the overheating sensation. That’s what bugs him the most. So many learning curves to navigate! Thank you again! Stay safe!
