How to crochet quick and easy face mask

Learn how to crochet a quick and easy face mask to wear it as a cover for surgical masks or with a proper filter. I don’t recommend to use this mask without a proper one. This crocheted mask doesn’t offer a proper protection against any virus, is more a fashion accessory so choose your favorite color and crochet yourself a cool mask.

The pattern for this crochet quick and easy face mask is perfect if you are a beginner, I recommend to watch the video tutorial before you start to crochet the mask, it will answer all your question, if you have one.

Is not an easy period for anyone and I’m trying to take advantage of this period reading, knitting and crocheting more, much more, watching movies, cooking and eating. I had ups and downs, good days and very bad ones but what I love about this period is that I’m spending more time with my husband! I’m still struggling with my sleeping hours, but that is because almost every day I’m staying late to crochet or knit. I’m still trying to organize my time to be more productive but it seems is harder then I thought. I’m still struggling to exercise every day, but I always find something better to do, like crocheting and knitting. Let’s stay safe and let’s protect the ones we love!

Skill level: Easy.

For this crochet quick and easy face mask you will need:

I’ve used 20g organic cotton and a 2mm hook.

For this project I recommend this yarn:


 

Superior quality cotton made from 100% organic cotton, natural and antibacterial. Here you can buy the yarn in your favorite color: http://bit.ly/2NarNhk


 

This is a very high quality cotton yarn. The mercerisation process gives the cotton a fantastic sheen and makes it even more durable. Here you can buy this yarn in your favorite color: http://bit.ly/2NeTUfA
