Vintage Knitted Balaclavas From The 1970s Magazines

The knitted and crocheted balaclavas here in this gallery are definitely not your average cable knit made with love by grandma, and the people who make these crazy pieces of knitwear clearly don’t take themselves too seriously. That’s kind of refreshing, isn’t it? So join the fun and have a laugh at some of the weirdest things to have ever happened to an innocent ball of yarn!

Knitting and crocheting seem like fun hobbies, and some people are truly talented at creating funky handmade scarves, hats, sweaters, and so on. Yet like all things crafty, there’s always potential to step into the weird territory and create something that is a little less practical than it is hysterical. Case in point; remember these fabulously raunchy crafts from the 1970s? Probably not, but that’s why we are here to remind.

    These are terrifying! One guy reminds me of Blindboy Boatclub. And why is that boy poking the bread?

    The two kids are hilarious, but I think that last one revealed I might be some kind of fetishist. She’s hot.
