Hi everyone! Today we are going to make a mask. A crocheted face mask ! Let’s the see the materials required for this. 3 ply cotton yarn from pradhan embroidery store 2.5 mm hook If we change the hook size, the crocheted mask size will also change so the hook size is very important we also need a scissors and a yarn needle to weave in the thread here i am showing an adult female size mask it measures nearly 15 centimeter in length. let me give a short introduction of the whole process involved The mask can be divided into 3 parts. First portion should remain tight near the cheeks middle portion should be wider and needs more gap and last portion should be tighter like the first portion then we need threads on both sides like this first portion is worked with half double crochet middle portion is done with double crochet stitch third portion has half double crochet and the thread is made with chain stitches so let’s start start with a Slipknot tighten the yarn keeping the hook then we need to do chain stitches For an adult female sized mask, 38 chains will be required here I”m going to do an adult male size mask this needs 42 chains.. 1,2,3 …42 now we have chained 42 then do 2 more chains insert hook into 42nd chain and do a half double crochet we have to do 8 half double crochet
in total three four five six seven we have done 8 half double crochets For middle portion do 26 double crochets one, two three four … … 24 25 26 . Next we have to do half
double crochets for next 8 stitches seven Eight hdc stitches are done. Next do one chain and turn the work we will be repeating the same pattern for the next rounds 8 hdc, 26 dc, 8 hdc do one chain and turn ….we have to continue in the similar way I will just show this in the already completed mask 10 rows are done in this last row should be tighter as it is kept over the nose so last row is completed with only half double crochets Since we are doing a mask for an adult male here we will be using 11 rows let me show one more row After turning the work, we need to do half double crochets wrap the yarn and insert the hook through this stitch as shown similarly do 8 stitches (hdc) six seven so we have done 8 hdc Now we will switch to double crochet.
Need to do 26 double crochet.. 1, 2, … 26 Next we’ll do half double crochet for last 8 stitches. eight hdc completed. then do a chain and turn again we have to repeat similarly for each row till we get total 11 rows So let’s see after completing 11 rows..okay Now we have reached the last step 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
we have done 11 rows i used 11 rows here since it need to be slightly bigger than the other you can see it came out as curled in both sides with a wider middle portion Next we are going to do the last row. For that do one chain and turn Then we will complete last row with half double crochets okay… half
double crochet now we are about to complete the last row Inserting through the last stitch you can see we have got it straight on the side Now we can do 42 chains for making the thread for putting mask around the ear 1 2 3 4 …. 41, 42 . Now we have done 42 chains Now we need to insert it to the lower side by using single crochet find the stitch at the lower corner of the mask and insert hook like this and do a single crochet. then
again insert through the next stitch and do a slip stitch. clear right ? single crochet followed by slip stitch to make it attached then do a chain and pull it tightly then cut the yarn using scissors like this We need to do similar thread on the other side also take out the yarn as shown i wanted to show how you can weave in the left over yarn take the needle and pull the yarn though it then put the needle through this stitch as shown we just need to hide the left over yarn pull it through the stitch like this and tighten it again return the through the next stitch secure the thread like this if required we can do it one more time to secure it firm now the yarn will not come out from this for sure then cut the yarn we will do a thread like this on the other side of the mask take the corner of the other side, insert hook and pull the yarn through it the put a knot like this then insert the hook and pull the yarn then continue doing the chain stitches (42) then attach it to the other end insert through one stitch, tighter and do a single crochet insert through next stitch, do a slip stitch followed by a chain stitch cut and pull yarn like we did earlier The mask will be ready after we weave in this also Hope everyone liked today’s tutorial. This is adult size male mask. If you want to do for kids, just start with smaller chain size (less number of chains) do 6 stitches (hdc) on both sides and adjust accordingly make same number of chains in thread similar to the number of chains used in the beginning we can put either a tissue when wearing the mask for additional safely or attach a rectangular piece if cotton cloth here Then our mask is completely ready thank you !
