I made this for my partner who can't sleep unless its totally dark. It's made out of cotton so its comfortable at night and doesn't make her too warm.

I think there is loads of mileage here... I am thinking frogs eyes, people eyes, maybe even boobs or a bum!!!!






Its just a couple of rows of single crochet then two fans and circles for the eyes, really simple.

Wow thanks for being so supportive with this!!! Here is the pattern:

*******************************
Step 1: Chain 39 stitches

Step 2: Use one as the original turning stitch then single crochet 10 lines of 38 stitches.

Step 3: Cast off the crochet.

Step 4: Start crocheting again in the 8th stitch from the edge.
from this position fan stitch 7 single crochets into the 9th stitch (or however many it needs to make a semicircle)

Step 5: Once this is done single crochet round the fan being careful to anchor each line into the main rectangle so it makes a joint up fabric. (It took me 7 lines of singe crochet until the end of the semi circle met up with the end of the base rectangle.)

Step 6: Repeat this on the other side. (It should leave a nose sized gap in the middle)

Step 7: Crochet round the entire mask in a contrasting color to hold everything together and give it a nice edge.



Optional Extras (Owl)

Step 1 : The eyes are just a crocheted circle ending up with 42 stitches, I then did one round in brown and the next in white with 6 picot stitches to create a ruffle. The inside of the eye is just a loosely embroidered diamond.


Step 2: The beak is made from ten single crochet stitches which are naturally reduced by not using a turning stitch. I then crocheted once around the triangle to give it a nice finish.


Step 3:  Sew everything up!

Become a night time owl!!!!!!!!!!!!

Il y a un monstre dans le lac, et il s'appelle Jean-Claude.
Mon ami le monstre sort du lac quand l'eau est trop chaude.
Le monstre vient au Lac du Bois pour jouer de la guitare.
Il aime bien manger les villageois et les monos bizarres. RAAAARAH!

I think this is cute-I've always been an owl fan, but I'm wondering how it would be to sleep with boobs or a bum on my face! Cheesy

That is too funny! I love it! Cheesy I too see where this could go....frog, spider (Grin), cat, etc!
I think I'll have to make me one! I have a problem sleeping during thunderstorms because of the light show....but I still haven't made myself a mask! 

'This Rocks!'
