Face Mask, Free Crochet Pattern + PDF

Stay safe is the new buzz word. And to do that, you also need a face mask. Use the free face mask crochet pattern in this post to make your own. 

You won't believe how easy the pattern is!

I can not take any credit for the pattern as it was designed by a happy crocheter, who shared it in a Facebook group.

And as a special thank you to all the generous ladies who are also going to be making masks for others, I provide the pdf free of charge.

ch        – chain

sc         - single crochet

st         - stitch

sts       - stitches


Finished face mask measures 8.5″ (21.5cm)(widest part) by 5.5″(14cm) (measured from under the eyes to under the mouth) - these are the measurements of the flat piece of the crochet mask.


Ch1 at every end of the row, does not count as a stitch;

You'll be crocheting the mask in steps (apart from the middle section).  See images below;

Line your face mask with pure cotton (and a filter) to provide proper protection,


wear it, over a paper or another surgical mask.

The number of chains can be adjusted to fit a smaller of bigger person.

This pattern is small enough for an average woman and big enough for a tall man.

Adjust the size of your mask by adjusting your yarn and hook combination too.

Well done - you finished one Face Mask!
