Updated: Sep 19
Welcome! I posted a photo of my mask on Instagram not knowing if I was going to publish a pattern for it and how folks liked to line there masks. Aside from a few concerned folks thinking the mask was not suitiable to wear (calm down, it's lined), a lot of other folks expressed interest.
So here it is. Due to the nature of everything that is going on, please be cautious when you're making masks for your family and friends. Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and follow their guidelines (www.cdc.gov) for information on the safety of face masks. Never place a mask on children under 2 years old. That being said, I am not responsible for anything that happens while using masks made with my pattern. Please be safe, responsible and stay home as much as you can during this time.
I won't be selling the pdf pattern in any of my shops but you can download it for free. Ravelry does NOT allow mask patterns. I learned it the hard way... It took me some time to figure a work around!

Using hair ties as your ear straps.
Work sc sts along the short edge catching the hair tie as you work each st. Work your sts every other row. Rep for other side.
FINISHING: Fasten off and weave in your ends.
The liner is doubled however if you plan to use one layer, just cut 2 pieces and follow same process.
Cut 4 layers of prewashed fabric using your mask as a template. You can do this a couple of easy ways. The fabric will be slightly larger (depending on how you traced it). This is okay because you will need additional fabric for the seam allowance which brings your liner to a slightly smaller demension.
Option 1) Lay your mask folded in half and trace it on a piece of paper Make sure you stretch it (see video). Then use the template to cut out for layers of fabric.
Option 2) Lay your mask (stretched) on the prewashed fabric directly and trace around. Then cut the pieces out.
With 2 layers, sew around edges, leaving approx 3/8" seam allowance. Leave 1.5-2" open on the top (curved) edge so you can turn your liner inside out. Don't forget to back stitch in the beginning and at the end so your stitches don't unravel. You can hand stitch this if you don't have a sewing machine. Repeat for other 2 layers. You should have 2 double layered pieces.
Cut diagonally at the 4 corners as close as you can to the thread without cutting the threads.
Turn fabric inside out from the unstitched "hole". Push edges and corners out using a stick or double pointed needle careful not to poke through your fabric. (not too sharp!).
Press (iron) your piece so it's nice and flat. With the 2 pieces held together, sew together the top curved edge as close as you can to edge (3/8").
Pin liner to the crochet mask with seam against the mask.
Hand stitch around using the invisible stitch seam. Leave approx 3/8" of the mask's edge.
Trim loose threads. Hope you enjoyed this pattern and tutorial. I'm not an expert on sewing but I tried! lol Please share!
