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.
We hope this freebie helps make 2020 just a little smoother for you and yours.
