Crochet mask adapters

A friend told me yesterday that his ears hurt from wearing PPE while caring for people in his role within the NHS. I was reminded of a Insta tag #crochetmaskadapters.

So now I’m crocheting them in bulk for friends of friends.

I knew I had been hoarding buttons for a reason!!

They are so easy to make:

I used oddments of Drops Paris 100% cotton yarn left over from my Face Scrubbies. The cotton has a little stretch but not so much that it will become misshapen on a 12 hour shift. It’s also washable!!

I used a 3.75 hook to get a good thickness to the fabric.


Chain 16 (more for a longer adapter , fewer for a shorter one)

Dc in 2nd chain from hook, DC to 1 before last chain

3DC in last chain

Turn work and DC back to first loop

2DC into first loop (3 in total with the first stitch),

Continuing in a spiral 3DC into very first DC

DC across

3DC in the centre stitch of 3DC below

DC across and slip stitch to join

Sew a button on either end.


Can’t wait to send these off to their deserving new owners!
