Crochet Owl Eye Mask

Crochet Owl Eye Mask

Through the early stages of my early menopause my number 2 complaint was my sleep patterns. If the hot flashes and night sweats weren’t enough, I’d be awake all night after them staring at the clock, the moonlight through the window shades, the red light on the smoke detector – basically anything my eyes could focus on.

I had an eye mask that my husband bought for me with a pajama set years back for Christmas but after I have a night sweat in something, I don’t want to put it back on until it’s clean – needed a few more and happened to run across a thousand different patterns on pinterest for eye masks. I found three I really liked one element or another from and pieced together an owl eye mask that I love!

I obviously didn’t create this pattern – you can find it everywhere online with little tweaks – I’m not taking credit but quite honestly, I don’t know where credit is due. I took little things from multiple sites to bring you this awesome crochet owl sleep mask.

Crochet Owl Eye Mask Materials Needed:

Cotton Yarn (white, black, and then 2 colors of your choice)
14-15″ of 1/4″ Elastic Band
Size 3.5 -4.0 crochet hook
Tapestry Needle

Outer Eyes (turquoise) Make 2

Create Magic Ring

16 double crochet into the magic ring and pull together tight
2nd Row:16 single crochet
3rd Row:  32 double crochet
4th Row: 32 single crochet
5th Row: 48 double crochet, cut yarn, and make one more

Inner Eyes (white)

Create a Magic Ring

16 DC into the magic ring and pull together tight
2nd row: 32 Double Crochet around.
Fasten Off and leave long tail for sewing on to outer eyes.

Using black thread and a tapestry needle, sew the eyelashes on – use your eye judgement to determine where to stitch.

Nose:

Chain 6
Skip the first stitch and slip stich in the 2nd chain from hook
Single crochet in the 3rd chain from hook
Half Double crochet in the 4th chain
Double Crochet in the 5th stitch
Treble Crochet in the 6th stitch (if needed – sometimes I need this to even it out right.t

Sew outer eyes together with about 7 slip stitches

Optional, SC around joined together outer eyes for a more finished look.

Sew inner eyes on with the tail left after you finished crochet
Attach the inner eyes to the outer eyes and trim and weave in ends.

Attach nose

Attach the 14″ elastic band to each side – you can choose to sew this on – I chose to tie mine on because I knew I’d be covering it up with fringe.

 

If you want, you can add fringe to the corners, I saw a couple of crocheters do that on Pinterest so I did it on this particular one – I don’t think you could sleep with the fringe but it sure is cute!

Do you love it? Pin it!

    I remember seeing this in the CT post yesterday. So so so cute!! I just can’t tell you how much I love it. I don’t usually sleep with a mask but might have to for this one. 🙂

    I LOOOOVE this!!! My husband works third shift, so I often find myself cuddling up in bed with him during the day, and this would be so perfect! I’ve just barely started getting into crochet, so I’m excited to give this pattern a try! Thanks for sharing! <3
