Crochet Patterns for Kids

Free unicorn eye mask crochet pattern
Copyright © Hookfully

Thanks for checking out my Unicorn sleep mask crochet pattern. 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 unicorn nightwear collection. The unicorn 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 unicorns ears, cone, flowers and sleepy eyes. The mask has elastic around the back to hold it to the head.

How to crochet an unicorn sleep mask

The unicorn 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 sleep mask I used Aran (weight 4) yarn in 6 colours. I also used a 5mm crochet hook, elastic and a sharp sewing needle. The eye mask uses approximately 27g (61m/69yd)of yarn.
