Crochet Mask

My Sister has been asking me to crochet her a mask. She works in a department store that requires her to wear a mask at all times. She probably has a dozen or more of the homemade cloth mask. I think she collects them as she has one to match every thing she wears. 
Not me, I have three that I rotate when I have to wear one.

A crochet mask? Well, you can’t be a crocheter and not try your hand with the latest trends. Now we all know these crochet mask will not hold to protective standards but she plans to wear them over a paper mask. So basically you can call these “mask covers”  

I looked around at different mask patterns until I found a couple I wanted to try. I took a break from crocheting a blanket that I’ve been working on for a few days now. I think it will take me weeks or months to complete. 

I found some yarn remnants that worked perfect to make this cotton granny square mask. While it looks a little large, It will shrink significantly when it is washed. 


Then I found a pattern to create this cute little basic mask. 


I am pleased at how these turned out and were fun and easy to make. They should arrive in my sisters mailbox by surprise sometime today. 
She has no idea I made them. 


Now I will get back to working on the blanket I’m making and hope to be able to share it with you soon.
Well, not actually “share the blanket“, but share the completed results. Haha.

  1. Cute masks Lisa! When the pandemic first started I was going to make a few crochet masks, but I wasn't sure if they would be protective from covid. That's a brilliant idea to put a paper mask underneath the crochet mask. I didn't think of doing that!

    1. If you can sew, you can also sew in a fabric liner.

  2. Aww, that granny-square mask is really cute! I've seen lots of crocheted and knitted masks around town since this all began in March. People can be pretty creative. I have tons I've sewn using my hugs stash of fat quarters (and gave most away to help folks). Visiting you via NANADIANA's blog! Blessings to you, Lisa! Have a lovely week!

  3. Mask covers! what a great idea. I have been reading and trying to comment at times. I hope this makes it. It looks like ti tool on one. I am still unable to get more than a title on a blog and cannot get to the body to type.
    We are getting settled in. Mark brought us a table and BR suit up from Port Richey, As soon as we get a mattress we can sty in the new to us trailer.

  5. Very cute Masks Lisa. You are so talented! I think adding a filter would make them very efficient against the virus.
    I am happy to feature these today at Love Your Creativity.
