I know that there are many people, both young and old, that have to to wear medical grade face mask for health reasons. And, medical mask are not very pretty (most of them are ugly) , so why not give them a cover up!
This mask isn’t designed to be wore alone, but over your traditional medical grade face mask to add color and uniqueness.
I chose a multi colored striped yarn that has vibrant colors of teal, hot pink, orange and white running through it. It’s Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton in Pink/Teal/Orange.
I also made another version of this mask in a fox. Available in both adult and child size. Find it HERE
I chose cotton yarn because it would have the least tendency to stretch out quickly and it can be easily washed and dried out.

Things you will need:
- I Love This Cotton in Pink/Teal/Orange
- Size E – 3.50mm Crochet Hook
- Yarn Needle
- Finished mask cover approx. 7’’ wide (without the straps) & 4.25’’ tall
- I typically have a small face but this pattern could easily be made smaller or larger by simply decreasing/increasing starting chains and adding/omitting rows
- ch = chain
- t = turn
- sc = single crochet
- hdc = half double crochet
- Sl st = slip stitch
- st = stitch (es)
Row 1: ch 28, hdc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across (26)
Row 2: ch 2, t, hdc in 3rd loop of each st across (26)
The 3rd loop is the loop on the back below the regular stitch.
You could easily just do regular hdc, but I like how doing it in the 3rd loop gives it that little detail on the front.
Row 3: ch 2, t, hdc in each st across (26)
Rows 4 – 11: repeat rows 2 & 3
Do not cut yarn.
Ch 1, do not turn and evenly sc down side. I worked 17 st down the sides. Place 2 sc in the bottom corner, sc across bottom, 2 sc in other corner, sc up the other side.
When you have reached the top of the side, ch 20, sl st into the bottom corner (you could easily add/decrease number of st depending on your face size, but 20 worked for me)
Attach yarn on the top corner of the other side, ch 20, sl st into bottom corner.
Cute yarn and weave in all ends.
