Easy to Crochet Face Mask Lanyard Necklace Holder Free Crochet Pattern

Easy to Crochet Face Mask Lanyard Necklace Holder Pattern

Easy to Crochet Face Mask Lanyard or Necklace Holder Pattern  - Free Crochet Pattern

This is an easy pattern for a beginner
Great for holding a face mask or attaching to your glasses and wearing around your neck when not in use.

What do you do with your face mask when leaving the store, school, work, or just taking a break? Do you hang it around one ear, or maybe you take it off and put it in a pocket or purse. Well, now you can crochet something that you can hang it around your neck. It can even be an ear saver if you loop the chain around your ears and pull it away from your ears so that it doesn't rub. 

Crochet an easy mask lanyard. Functional and decorative mask holder or mask strap with removable clips fits most mask styles for kids and adults. This is perfect for kids that may be more likely to lose their mask. Great for teachers, nurses or anyone that works with a mask on! There are many different ways to make a lanyard for your face mask. This one is the necklace style but there are so many designs and ideas to embellish and add to your project!

Yarn suggested - I used washable cotton yarn but any washable acrylic yarn can be used.
Crochet Hook sizes G, H, or I.

The pattern is fairly easy just a single crochet. You can embellish the item or make it larger or smaller if you prefer.
You want to make it about 26 or 27 inches long so be sure to measure your chain instead of counting it.
It all depends on who you are making it for.

For this pattern we did a basic single crochet of two rows but you can easily make it more rows to make it thicker or larger.

Crochet Pattern

Ch 1 and continue until your chain measures about 27 inches.
Single crochet across starting in second chain from hook. Single crochet across and turn. SC next row and finish off.
Once finished add a hook of your choice. You can either sew the hook on to the end or clip it on for easy removal for washing. 

We used a lanyard holder clip that you push and clip on. You can easily clip these to the end of your project or fold the end over and clip it on.  You can also use a jewelry hook that are used for necklaces or eyeglass holders.

When Beauty is Created and not bought 

The story behind anything is what makes it beautiful. It’s why we like our framed art prints, but cherish the drawings by our kindergartner. It’s why we reach for the sweater our grandmother knit when we’re cold, or wear the bracelet we made at Girls’ Night to a special event. It’s because we know there’s meaning in making.
