Stretch Knit Face Mask

This is one of my favorite face masks. SO comfortable! And I love the fit!

With a lot of face masks I have a hard time finding just the right fit. Since the knit fabric stretches, it wraps around the face quite nicely.

I used a brushed polyester spandex from JoAnn that has a great stretch and holds its shape. Here are the links to the dot and floral fabrics.

In addition to providing a safer environment, these masks also double as protection against dog licks.

This masks can be made using a zigzag stitch and stretch or ball point needle, or with a combination of a zigzag and twin needle. I used a stretch twin needle with width 2.5. The purple thang tool was very handy when sewing the binding.

Here is the pattern for the face mask. The pattern is available in a variety of sizes. I made a medium for myself and used 26 – 26.5 inches of trim. I used 26.5 of the zigzag stitched trim, and 26 with a twin needle.
