This crochet eye mask pattern is worked up in two squares and then joined together for a comfortable sleep mask. It fits comfortably over the eyes to help keep the sunlight out. It also promotes relaxation, thus, giving you dozens of reasons to make a few of these and have them handy for when you need them.
Whether you work the midnight shift, travel a lot or just want to fall asleep faster at bedtime, this crochet mask is just what you need. It’s also great for a new mom or anyone feeling tired and in need of extra rest and relaxation during the day.
The crochet sleep mask pattern makes for a lovely gift idea and can be made in a matter of minutes using only a small amount of yarn, And you don’t have to worry about size because it ties at the back for a comfortable fit.
Easy square measures approximately 3 inches square prior to joining together. If you need a larger size you can simply add another row of single crochets to enlarge it a bit.
I used Red Heart Comfort, a medium worsted weight yarn. However, it is an acrylic yarn and may not be suitable for those with sensitive skin.
Those with sensitive skin might feel better with a soft worsted weight cotton instead.
It is a nice stashbuster pattern as you don’t need much yarn. If you have a lot of small odds and ends you can crochet each square in two or even three different colors, with each round in a different color.
How it’s Made
This eye mask crochet pattern is worked up in basic crochet stitches. The only stitches used here are the chains, single crochet and double crochet stitches.
To make this, simply crochet the squares and before fastening off, make a series of chains to tie the eye mask at the back of the head.
Then using the mattress stitch, join the two pieces together on opposite sides of the strings.
And that is it! Hope this pattern helps you to rest easy.
