It’s a spooktacular project! These Crochet Face Masks are jazzed up with Halloween designs and are perfect to use as a costume or just a festive way to celebrate the holiday and month of October. You can find the Crochet Mask pattern on Yarnspirations.com and it is designed with a fabric liner. BUT I have some other thoughts too…. You could wear these (like a costume) over a disposable mask or other face covering. You also don’t need to use these for yourself. How about on a pumpkin for a 2020 Halloween vibe? Or how about on a stuffed animal or doll (LIKE I DID HERE)?! Lots of ways to use these cute Halloween Masks!
As I mentioned, you can find the Free CROCHET FACE MASK PATTERN HERE on Yarnspirations.com! This pattern has been trending for months!
I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarn and a size G Crochet Hook. So grab your orange, white, purple, and green yarn and crochet the BASIC MASK PATTERN.
Then I went ahead and stitched on embellishments and faces using strands of yarn and my tapestry needle. The trick is to create the outline of the shape you want (like a triangle or the jack o lantern mouth) and then fill it in once you have the outline made.
For the skeleton, the eyes are just crochet in simple rounds:
Magic Ring, chain 1 and make 10 SC in ring, join, chain 1
Round 2: 2 SC in first, SC in next, repeat around, join, fasten off
For Frankensteins eyes:
Magic Ring, chain 1 and make 12 SC in ring, join, fasten off
stitch on black pupils.
For the cat ears:
Chain 5, SC in second chain from hook, HDC in next, DC in last two.
The rest of the embellishments I hand stitched on! So have fun with this and create even more characters! How about a witch?! Or a ghost?! Lot of ways to make a face mask more fun.
