How to crochet Face Mask Extender/Ear Savers

To crochet this project it’s very simple. You will simply crochet the body of the ear savers, before adding the frilly edging. Then you will sew the buttons onto the ear savers. It’s super easy and quick!

Like I said, you can also make a man version. So it’s a win win.

This pattern requires a multiple of 2+1 for the base chain. You can therefore customize the project really easily. You can add some chains to make it larger, or make less chains if you make one for a child.

The buttons used are super feminine, I love them. They just add so much charm to the project. They are 18 mm buttons available online, so very well worth buying. You can however place any buttons you have at hand for your crochet ear savers/face mask extender.
