Crochet Owl Sleep Mask Pattern

This is a great little project that takes hardly and time and a few scraps that anyone who sews or crochets will have laying around :)

These eye masks make great party favors for a girly sleepover, perfect for those of us unlucky to work nights  or just those of us who prefer to not get up until the early afternoon ;)

I used a size 4mm crochet hook and standard 8 ply (DK) wool, as well as a little bit of elastic.

Sc around the outside of the mask as many times as you like to make it the size you want (I went round twice with mine)

Finish off and weave in loose ends

Now attach pieces of elastic to the sides

And there you go! One easy sleep mask!

Eyes (Make 2):

In a magic loop,

Rnd 1: 8 hdc, join and ch 1

Rnd 2: 2 hdc in each hdc, join and ch 1

Rnd 3: 2 hdc in each hdc, join and finish off leaving a long tail for sewing

To create the eyes, use a tapestry needle and a little black wool to create them

Beak:

ch 7

Row 1: hdc in 2nd ch from hook and in every ch to the end of the row, ch 1 and turn

Row 2: hdc dec in the next 2 hdc, hdc in the next 2 hdc, hdc dec in the last 2 hdc, ch 1 and turn

Row 3: hdc dec in the next 2 hdc, hdc dec in the last 2 hdc, ch 1 and turn

Row 4: hdc dec in the last 2 hdc, ch 2

Finish off leaving a long tail for sewing

Assemble and sew all the bits to the main mask and attach a bit of elastic long enough to stretch round your head to the sides of the mask and you're done!

One owl sleep mask!
