For one mask you need:
- a small skein of black and, in my case, pink yarn. I wanted to give the mask a little childish mood.
- a wide elastic band, a small stretch of plain or one color with yarn.
- a hook suitable for the thickness of the yarn.
- needle and thread for sewing.
We start with a chain of six air loops, the seventh loop will be lifting and transitional to the second row.
Each new row should be knitted further with the addition of one new column from the sides. I decided to knit this mask with columns with crochets, but you can choose any other pattern that you like. The main thing here is that the pattern allows you to save the necessary shape of the mask.
When the extension reaches about 10 cm, attach the canvas to the eye, if you are comfortable and it tightly covers your eye. That can no longer expand. Knit two or three rows without extensions and begin to narrow the rows to make a notch for the nose. We narrow it down in the same way as we expand it, only instead of an additional loop in the bottom column we skip the whole column. This should be done on both sides of two new rows, and then only on the side where the nose will be.
Periodically apply half the mask to your face and measure how much more you need to tie to the nose. Otherwise, the mask may turn out to be either too wide or narrow. When half the mask will cover your temple, the upper cheekbone and half of the nose can stop the narrowing.
The second half fits mirror first. That is, first we expand the fabric, then we knit two or three rows even to the last and narrow to the required size.
On the sides of the mask we make "ears", which will be fastened to each other with an elastic band so that it is more convenient to wear a mask.
Now we make decor for our mask so that it becomes more fun and interesting. We take black yarn and knit a chain of 12 air loops.
Expand the chain and bind it by tying the "cilia".
We make two such "sleeping" eyes and sew them on the mask.
Here is what happened.
In such a soft and gentle mask, your sleep will be calm, and your dreams will be fabulous.
