One of the most important measures taken against the COVID-19 Virus, which captures the world, is, of course, the face mask. Special masks like the N95 are the best type of mask for this deadly Virus. But now it is difficult to supply this mask. Those who cannot supply this mask also produce their mask. One of the most preferred of these methods is the crochet face mask. Of course, we would like to remind you that this mask is more useful for situations such as pollen allergies. These masks will not protect you from the COVID-19 Virus. After we make the necessary warning, let’s go back to our original topic. Successful crochet designer Ariana has designed a very successful crochet mask with a filter feature. The crocheted face mask that she prepared for children and adults looks quite beautiful. By clicking on the subject link below, you can browse Ariana’s website and access the pattern instructions of this crochet mask from there for free. Also, Ariana has made an explanatory video showing how she did it. Let’s not forget to visit and thank Ariana’s website.
