After the hustle and bustle of the holidays, you will need to whip up one of these crochet sleepy owl masks and get yourself some much needed sleep!
Crochet Sleepy Owl Mask Pattern

SC decrease = single crochet decrease

Continue to sc around entire mask, fasten off weave in ends.
Eyes (Make 2):
Magic ring, make 10 HDC in magic ring, join, ch 2
Round 2: 2 HDC in each stitch around (20 HDC)
fasten off leaving long tail to sew onto mask.
Stitch the eyelashes on with a tapestry needle and black yarn. Here is a helpful video on how to do this by
Chain 5, SC in second chain from hook, HDC in next, DC in next two
fasten off leaving tail to sew onto mask.
Now you can sew eyes and nose onto the mask.
You can leave it as is, but the yarn might be a little itchy against your skin. So I used a piece of scrap fleece (all I had on hand was blue), traced the mask onto the fleece and cut out a piece that was the same size. I then used a blanket stitch to sew it onto the backside of the mask.
Use five 10 inch strands of yarn for each "ear." It can be multiple colors. Pull the yarn through one stitch on each end of the mask, knot and trim to desired length.
Now you can use ribbon (as I did) for the straps or you can crochet straps. I used two pieces of ribbon, pulled it through a stitch on the edge of each side, and use a little dab of hot glue to secure one end down. You can now tie the ribbons together to keep the mask on your head, or use some velcro to make it adjustable and a little more secure.
Now enjoy some rest and relaxation!
