Back in September I released a Giraffe sleep mask crochet pattern and promised I’d bring you more. Finally, I’m able to share with you this Chicken crochet sleep mask crochet pattern. It’s been ready for over a month but I’ve been so busy working on Halloween patterns that I’m only just getting to the Chicken mask now. I also have another animal mask pattern ready to be shared over the next couple of weeks. Eventually, I plan to have about six new sleep mask crochet patterns which can be sold as a bundle like my previous sleep mask pack.
Just as with all of my other sleep mask crochet patterns, this one is made with Stylecraft Special DK yarn and a 4mm hook. You’ll need 5 different colours of yarn – white, beige, yellow, red and black but you’ll only need small amounts, making this a perfect scrap yarn project. The ties for the eye mask are made by braiding together 3 strands of yarn but, you could use some elastic or crochet some ribbing. You may also want to back the mask with some fabric to aid in blocking out the light.
Beige, yellow, red, black and white DK yarn – I use Stylecraft Special DK

Sew the eyes onto each end of the face then use a yarn needle and black yarn to stitch on the eyelids. Attach the nose and comb between the eyes. Then, weave in the ends. For the ties, I have braided together 3 strands of yarn and secured a braid to each side of the eye mask. Alternatively, you could use some elastic or crochet some ribbing. You may also want to back the mask with some fabric to aid in blocking out the light.
