Abbreviations

HDC = half double crochet

Mask Pattern:

Ch 5, 2 SC in second chain from hook, SC in next 2 stitches, 2 SC in last stitch, ch 1, turn
Row 2: SC in each stitch, ch 1, turn (6 SC)
Row 3: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 4, 2 SC in last, ch 1, turn
Row 4-8: SC in each stitch, ch 1, turn (8 SC)
Row 9: SC dec, SC in next 4, SC dec, ch 1, turn
Row 10: SC in each stitch, ch 1 turn (6 SC)
Row 11: SC dec, SC in next 4, ch 1, turn
Row 12: SC in each stitch, ch 1, turn (5 SC)
Row 13: 2 SC in first, SC in next 4, ch 1, turn

Row 16-20: SC in each stitch, ch 1, turn (8 SC)
Row 21: SC dec, SC in next 4, SC dec, ch 1, turn
Row 22: SC in each stitch, ch 1, turn (6 SC)
Row 23: SC dec, SC in next 2, SC dec, ch 1, turn
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:

Nose:
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!

    I have just found you, but I think your things are exactly what I need to fill in those "need to crochet something" feelings. I never start anything because I never finish because I take on something too big for my time! Can't wait. I think this is going to be the first = )

    This is a great way to get everyone into the habit of regularly wearing a sleeping mask, not only for fun, but for good health. It's a necessity if your bedroom isn't totally darkened (pitch black). That means, no light seeping in around window coverings or doors, or from electronics.

    I write about the benefits in my website … "Research has proven that artificial night light suppresses melatonin production. Melatonin production is essential to get deep restorative sleeps and ward off major diseases like cancer."

    "And, research confirms that blocking out artificial light helps to greatly reduce tumor growth in breast cancer … and prostate cancer."

    Can't wait to make myself a "Sleepy Owl Mask". Thanks Sara, for sharing your pattern.

    Just wanted to say thank you so much for this tutorial. I made mine with cotton yarn- Lily and Cream. It turned out fabulous and I didn't have to line it! The cottony feels great against the skin and doesn't itch at all. Just wanted to mention that idea for others. I'm a seamstress too, so I used elastic and stitched it down. This mask was perfect to give me something fun to wear to bed. I wear a sleep mask every night as it helped force me to keep my eyes closed and sleep at night instead of thinking about all the things I have to do the next with the kids. Love that I now have a cute one! My little 4 year old asked me to make one for her too!

    These are very cute. I cannot wait to try them. I belong to a non-profit organization that raises money for diabetes research grants to people in the medical field at universities. I am kicking around the idea of these as gift to people who make a donation to that research fund (100% of money goes to research, so the cost of these would be donated by me. I could attach a card with the link)

    How did you create this website? I am a crocheter, and I'm looking for a good crochet website that I can create, that won't cost a bunch of money. If this website was free, I will dance on the roof of my house with joy. If it costs little, just fine! If this website has cost you like $100, then it's a no-go.
    I would really appreciate your help!!
