This crochet sleep mask pattern is a self care and crochet enthusiasts dream. It’s a pattern I designed for the crochet society self care box and I think it’s actually one of my favourite designs. I love how easy it is to make, the cross stitch detail and also how it feels to wear. The super soft yarn and the gentle weight feels lovely on the eyes whilst doing the job of keeping the light out.
