Sharing is caring!

After this ridiculously straightforward tutorial you will easily be able to make a simple crochet mask lanyard. With this adaptable pattern you can whip up mask straps for every member of your family, quickly and simply.

I lose stuff.

All kinds of stuff.

And during the pandemic of 2020 that wonderfully helpful trait of mine spilled over to face masks.

I spent loads of time on Etsy looking for super cute masks….because if we have to wear them I want them to at least look adorable.

Within a few weeks, that mask would go missing. It would simply walk out of my house never to be seen again. They are probably hiding out with the missing single socks.

After losing one of my favorite masks, (it was orange and had the literal cutest cat faces on it) I decided I was never going to let those suckers get away again.

I crocheted a super simple crochet mask lanyard and I knew I had to share it with you as well.

Customize the Size of Your Mask Strap

If you would like to make your super simple crochet mask lanyard shorter or longer, the process is super duper simple.

Simply adjust how many chains you begin with. Add more or less to get the length you need.

Then for Row 2, adjust the number of single crochets you make between the buttonholes.

For example if you were making a smaller mask lanyard, you could begin with 100 chains. For Row 2 you could: sc 10, ch 2, skip 2 st, sc 74, ch 2, skip 2 st, sc 10, ch1, turn.

Finally, make sure to experiment a bit with the buttonholes on Row 2 for your own buttons and personal tension.

I used 1.5 cm buttons and I have a pretty tight tension so I only needed to ch 2 to be able to fit the button snuggly.

You want the buttons to have a nice tight fit, because over time the buttonholes will likely stretch.

An alternative would be to sew the ends closed so that the buttons were purely decorative. But that would mean that the lanyard would be permanently attached to the face mask.

Even though wearing a mask isn’t always fun, we can at least look cute while we are wearing them.

I found both of these masks on Etsy and I have found that they color coordinate with many of my outfits, not that I’m going anywhere these days.
