*Disclaimer: this mask is not a medical device, it is meant to be worn as a mask cover (to make those surgical masks a little prettier).
Crocheting in a pandemic is the one thing that brings me solace. Creating something beautiful gives me a sense of accomplishment. We all feel a bit powerless right now and to counteract that feeling I decided to spice up my surgical mask with something that makes me feel more powerful.
So I crocheted a Wonder Woman face mask covering! I want to channel my personal power and take back some of the uncertainty, as well as make people smile a bit. I am always here to help work through my patterns, if you would like to join my pattern support group, you can find that here…

Love the mask but have a question about the ties, are they supposed to tie around the head or the ears? Mine seem to be too short to go around the head.
You can modify them to go around the head if you’d like, but I made them to go around the ears for sure.
