Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits well I made this last night and it fits really well. I put it over one of the disposable masks. The only drawback is that it is really hot. It's probably a closer fit than a lot of the fabric masks I've made. Not sure how to make it less hot though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the pattern, but the liner isn't fitting well I've made the crochet face mask cover and it turned out great. Making the liner was was also easy. However, after attaching it to the crocheted cover it doesn't stretch with the mask when I put it on. The crochet cover alone fits so nice and snug over my face. But when I put on the line, the liner did not permit the crochet part to stretch and it then didn't fit snug on my face which caused it to fall off when moving or breathing. Any ideas? Should I only tack it at the top and bottom and create a crocheted loop on the inside of the cover to hold the liner in place?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ear Savers Several are asking how to use the ear saver. This is used behind your head (at ear level) if your mask is too loose or the ear straps are rubbing on the back of your ears and it bothers you. So put your mask on as usual. Hold the ear saver behind your head, stretch one ear strap behind and hook over the flower, repeat for other side. Hope this helps. You may need this later after you wash your mask as the cotton yarn tens to loosen up/stretch out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable idea I’m just now starting to make one. This pattern is simple enough and the whole project adds a wonderful home made touch to give as a gift. In response to the comment question about how the ear savers are attached, they technically arent. The ear saver portion is positioned flat on the back of your head or above your pony tail and the ear loops are looped around the flower portion on either side instead of behind your ears. They remain two separate pieces. The ear saver can be worn with any ear loop mask to relieve the tension behind someone’s ears.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How to use earsaver For the person who asked, the earsaver goes behind your head with the elastic from the mask looped around the flowers instead of on your ears. Some people's ears get irritated and sore when they have to wear a mask for long periods of time. This one is really cute, may have to make some for my nurse friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ear Savers I'm making this and totally at a loss as to where/how the "Ear Savers" are attached???

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There is a Liner To you other reviewer, there is a liner! Very cute idea but I also think a knit one would be more dense. I think another phono for the back side would be not so misleading! I agree with the first reviewer it should be given a different title!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crochet mask with liner The directions tell how to a liner that is basted in so it can be removed and washed after wearing and the hand sewn back inside. How do the ear savers work?
