Sleep mask (crochet pattern)

Sleep mask (crochet pattern)

A crochet pattern for those who need darkness to get a good sleep. For those of us who have a hard time forgetting how bright it is on the other side of our eyelids, if you’re wanting to take on a small crochet project you can DIY your own solution, and make it custom to the colors you like. For those of us without crochet experience, maybe you know someone who wouldn’t mind a new project.

This is a crochet accessory that comes to us by way of Tanya at the Little Things Blog, who made the mask you see in the picture above in mint-colored yarn, and she said it was a fun crochet project to do.

For this DIY crochet sleeping mask project, you will need (crochet supplies):

– 3.5 crochet hook (E/4)
– Yarn in 2 colors (Tanya used mint cotton yarn with silver for the borders in the picture).
– Tapestry needle
– Scissors

Understanding of the pattern:

This isn’t one of those crochets where you start in the middle and do a whorl around to add size. Instead, you’ll start at the top and crochet your way down to the bottom.

In the middle of this is the nose gap, which you have to think about as you go.

At the end, you don’t fasten off; instead, single crochet around the entire mask twice.

Then crochet around 2X more with your second color of yarn (see the double border in the photo above to get an idea).

Fasten off and weave in the end parts. You’re done. For the full crochet pattern, visit Tanya at Little Things Blogged (click here).
