Woodland Animals Costume Masks

Woodland Animals Costume Masks Pattern

Difficulty Level:  Easy

Size:  Toddler - Adult

--#4 Worsted Weight Yarn (Terra Cotta, White and Black for Fox; Gray and White for Wolf; total of approx. 40-60 yds per mask)
--4.5mm hook
--Button for nose
--Tapestry needle for weaving

Stitch Abbreviations:
Ch:  chain
Sl st:  slip stitch
St:  stitch(es)
SC:  single crochet
FO:  fasten off

Fox: Terra Cotta, Black and White yarn
Wolf:  Gray and White yarn

Toddler - Kid:
1.   With Terra Cotta yarn, Ch45.  Sl st to first ch to form a ring.  Ch1 and SC in each ch around.  Sl st to first st and Ch1.  ***NOTE:  at this point, you will want to double check and make sure the ring is the right size to fit around the perimeter of your child's eyes since faces come in all sizes and shapes***  (45)
2.  1 SC in each st around.  Sl st join and Ch1.  (45)
At this point, leave your hook as is.  Use your tapestry needle and a piece of yarn to pinch the center together and slip stitch.   See pic below.  You will see that I placed a stitch marker at the base chain  number 23.  I slip stitched chain 1 and chain 23 together.  This is to make the 2 eye openings. 
3.  Pick up hook again, and complete another round of SC stitches.  Sl st join and FO.  Weave ends.  (45)
4.  Rejoin yarn with a sl st and Ch1 at stitch number 36.  SC in same st.  And, then SC in the next 19 st.  So, you will be crocheting across the top.  Ch1 and turn.  (20)
5-6.  SC in each st across the top.  Ch1 and turn.  At the end of Row 6, FO and weave ends. (20) 

Ears (make 2):
1.  With black yarn, Ch2.  SC in 2nd ch from hook.  Ch1 and turn.  (1)
2.  2 SC in st.  Ch1 and turn.  (2)
3.   2 SC in first st.  1 SC in next st.  FO black yarn and join Terra Cotta.  Ch1 and turn.  (3)
4.  1 SC in each st across.  Ch1 and turn.  (3)
5.  2 SC in first st, 1 SC in next st, 2 SC in last st.  Ch1 and turn.  (5)
6.  1 SC in each st across.  Ch1 and turn.  (5)
7.  2 SC in first st, 1 SC in next 3 st, 2 SC in last st.  Ch1 and turn.  (7)
8.  1 SC in each st across.  FO and weave ends.
9.  Join white yarn in any st and SC around perimeter of ear.  FO and leave tail for attaching to mask.
Use a black button and attach.  See pic below.
For the Straps:
1.  Join yarn in stitch 11 of Round 3 and Ch 60.  Sl st in 2nd ch from hook and across.  FO and weave ends.  Repeat on opposite side of Round 3 in stitch 35.

Teen - Adult:
1.  You will start with a Ch61.  Complete the same way as for the Toddler - Kid size, except:
--you will pinch together the center at base Ch1 and Ch30.
--when working rows across the top, you will first join yarn at stitch number 50, SC in stitch number 50 and into the next 21 st across (22)
--for the straps you will join your yarn in stitch numbers 12 and 49.  

All other steps are the same.  And, that's it.  You could easily use this pattern as your base pattern to create many different animal masks by changing yarn color and the shape of the ears.

PIN and SHARE this pattern with your crocheting friends....
