This is a simple half an hour project that might help with the face mask. It hurts my ears wearing the mask for prolonged time. I have seen variety of similar things on the internet. I decided to use cotton yarn for mine and make it double to keep the mask buddy from stretching too much.Once this pandemic is over, you can use it as a book mark without the buttons, or a needle holder.

This mask buddy is knit in the round, in one piece. The two buttons are sewn on after finishing. You can adjust the length by adding or substracting the number of rounds between the increase and decrease rounds.

Finished Mask Buddy Size: 7” (18 cm) long.

Yarn: Cotton yarn in your favorite color.
For my sample I used Sugar and Cream yarn, I think.
