Here is the third free crochet sleep mask pattern, there’s five of these in total and they are all available now on Ravelry, you can find them by clicking here. They are really easy to make and don’t require much yarn.
You’ll need a 4mm crochet hook DK weight yarn in three colours – light brown, dark brown and white. For the ties you have a few different options, I have braided together three strands of yarn and simply tied a knot in the end but you may want to consider using a strip of elastic or crocheting some ribbing.

Sew the eyes onto each end of the face then use a yarn needle and white yarn to stitch on the eyelids. Attach the nose 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.
