Tissue Holder (Inside Mask)

Make 2

  1. Ch 21, fasten off leaving a tail.

  2. Position the two inside straps far enough inside the mask to cover your nose and mouth. (See photo.) The designer tied the top in a knot and left the bottom open until later step (see end of pattern).

  3. Take 2 4" cuts and weave as close to the side as you can. When you tie to your head, you'll pull these side cuts so that the mask is taut to your face. Tie them and you can cut extra off.

Head Ties

  1. Using a size F hook, attach yarn to corner and ch 66. Fasten off.

  2. Repeat for each corner of the mask.

  3. Once straps are completed, adjust the tissue holder on the inside and tie off.

A crocheted face mask is just wrong!! Even with a tissue inside! This blows my mind that you offer this pattern!

Because you're a Covid expert. Calm down.
