Crochet Patterns for Kids

Free Bunny Sleep Mask Crochet Pattern
Copyright © Hookfully

The free bunny sleep mask crochet pattern will fit kids and adults. Sleep masks are a great sleep aid for children, especially to help them nod off on light summer nights and daytime naps. They also make fun blindfolds too! This cute eye mask is part of my bunny nightwear collection.

Bunny sleep mask description

The bunny sleep mask is suitable for all ages. Its designed for kids but it will certainly fit adults too! The sleep mask is thick and sturdy and is decorated with bunny ears, a cute little nose and sleepy eyes. The mask has elastic around the back to hold it to the head.

How to crochet a bunny eye mask

The bunny sleep mask crochet pattern is easy skill level. You will need to know all your basic crochet stiches as well as good sewing and tapestry skills. Overall its a very fast, easy crochet pattern. To make the crochet eye mask I used Aran (weight 4) yarn in 3 colours. I also used a 5mm crochet hook, elastic and a sharp sewing needle. The eye mask uses approximately 29g (58m/65yd) of yarn.
