Koala sleep mask crochet pattern

Thanks for checking out my Koala 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 eye mask collection. Check out my other patterns for more animal themes.

Koala sleep mask description

The koala 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 koala ears, a cute nose and sleepy eyes. The mask has elastic around the back to hold it to the head.

How it’s made

The koala sleep mask crochet pattern is easy skill level. You will need to know all your basic crochet stiches as well as having 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 30g (60m/67yd) of yarn.
