Crochet Mask with Pocket Filter

Crochet Mask W/ Pocket Filter

This Crochet Mask with Pocket Filter is lightweight and easy to create, with its pocket design you can even add a filter. By using cotton yarn, the crochet mask is reusable and machine washable.

I love the idea of crocheting your own mask because you can design it for your comfort. You can make the mask in different colors to match your wardrobe and with the adjustable straps, you can tailor it perfectly to fit your face.

I’ve made the mask in a few different sizes to fit my family’s needs, so the pattern can be customized. As stated, I went with cotton yarn because it tends to be softer and easily washable.

Yarn Closer Look

I used Lily Sugar’n Cream Cotton yarn it’s 100% cotton and a perfect choice for many different crochet projects. It a worsted weight yarn and it’s sold in many different color choices, including neutral, brights, and even pastels. Over the years, I’ve used this yarn to create household projects such as dish towels, dishcloths, potholders, and now I’ve expanded to a crochet mask.

Sugar n' Cream Yarn

As with many of my projects, creating can be done in many different ways. Learning how to crochet should be a relaxing process but it can take time to develop a technique that works best for you. My goal is to show you how to create beautiful crochet projects from a beginner’s perspective.

Adjustable Ear Straps

Once you’ve finished your 30th stitch, at the end of the row, you will begin to create the adjustable strap.

Chain of 23 stitches (this will make a long ear strap but with a cord lock or a bead, it will make the strap adjustable).

Bend the chain, so that it will attach to the bottom of the mask. Secure the chain to make the ear strap. This is for one ear strap.

Repeating the process on the opposite side, attach the yarn to the other side of the mask, at the top corner.

Create a chain of 23, bend and secure chain to the bottom of the mask.

Bend the chain in half and secure the cord lock at the bend. A bead will work the same as the cord lock.

Note: If you don’t have a cord lock or a bead, you can always attach a chain at all 4 corners on the mask and then tie the straps together.

Pocket

Lay the mask flat, count over 10 stitches, place a stitch marker. Count over another 10 stitches, from the first stitch marker, and place the second stitch marker.

Attach the yarn at the first stitch marker and then chain 3 (this will count as your first double crochet stitch.

Row 1– dc in each st across until you reach the second stitch marker. Ch 3, tw. (10 st)

Row 2– dc in each st across until you reach the second stitch marker. Ch 3, tw.(10 st).

Row 3-8 repeat row 2

Row 8– Make sure the pocket flap meets the bottom of the mask, if the mask does not reach, you may have to create one more row to ensure the pocket flap is aligned with the bottom of the mask.

Using either a sewing needle or using a slip stitch, attach the flap along the bottom edge. This will create a pocket that is designed to hold a filter. I used the P 2.5 Filter Mask.

Finish off, cut and weave in any tail ends.

Medium/Large Mask-
