Crochet Face Mask Adapter – Free Crochet Pattern
Quick and simple Crochet Face Mask Adapter even if you don’t have buttons in the house.
This ear protector strap for a face mask is a very easy project you can make in a few minutes and you can donate them to those who need them the most and show your support.
You can use them with regular face masks or you can make your own face mask with filter inserts from one of my 3 designs here: Crochet Face Mask with Filter Pocket, Crochet Face Mask with Filter, and Crochet Face Mask with Filter Insert.
This crochet face mask adapter pattern comes in two versions: with regular plastic buttons or with your own crocheted buttons.
I will show you how to make your own yarn buttons the easy way. Make as many ear protectors as you like and spread the love.

Crochet Face Mask Adapter – CROCHET PATTERN
The Crochet Strap
With 3.5mm hook and cotton yarn ch22
Row 1: sc in 3rd ch from hook, 18hdc, 3hdc in the last chain.
Don’t turn, instead rotate your work around so the working yarn ends up on the right side again. It’s now time to crochet on the other side of the chain.
19Hdc (one in each chain), sl st on top of ch2 you skipped at the beginning of the row. Fasten off and weave in the ends.
The Yarn Buttons
If you don’t have any spare buttons in the house to make this ear protector, I have a simple solution: make your own yarn buttons.
Here is a simple pattern.
With a 3.5mm crochet hook and cotton yarn, make a magic ring. Work in the round, without turning.
Round 1: ch1 (does not count as a stitch), 8hdc, sl st. Don’t close the magic ring just yet.
Round 2: 15hdc in the magic ring, made over the previous round of hdc, sl st, fasten off, and weave in the end.
Close the magic ring by pulling the tail tight. Don’t cut or weave the tail yet.
TIP: To make the buttons even bigger, repeat round 2 and crochet another layer of hdc stitches (make 20).
Assembling The Face Mask Adapter
If you are using plastic buttons, use the sewing yarn and thread to sew one at each end of the crocheted strap.
If you made your own yarn buttons, use the tails from the magic ring and sew one at each end of the crocheted strap.
