Free Face Mask Ear Savers Crochet Pattern
Just the other day I shared some face mask crochet patterns with you, and then I was reading about how wearing a mask for prolonged periods can play havoc with the backs of your ears. They can get sore and even blistered.
So when I came across this free pattern over on Ravelry I knew I needed to tell you about it!
[UPDATED: I’ve now added some more button free ear savers to this post so keep on scrolling to see them!]
As long as you have some yarn scraps in your stash and some buttons and thread you’re good to go on this project.
It’s a very easy pattern that’s written in US terms. You’ll need to know how to chain, half double crochet, single crochet and slip stitch.
Once you get started you’ll see how fast these clever things work up, and you could easily make a small pile of them in an hour.
If you’ve been wondering how you can do your bit why not make a stash and donate them to your front line keyworkers?
I’m sure they (and their ears) would thank you for your kindness!
