This ponytail mask mate pattern was designed after I started making mask mates to help prevent ear discomfort from wearing a medical mask for extended periods of times. A friend wears a ponytail at work almost every day & requested one that would fit around her ponytail.

Gauge is not important for this project.

Any worsted weight 100% cotton yarn can be used.
Cotton is highly recommended so these can be sanitized/washed & dried at high temperatures.

Finished length is approximately 7 inches. The length can be easily adjusted by increasing or decreasing the foundation chain.

size G crochet hook
100% cotton yarn
2 buttons (I used 1 inch/25mm)

Stitch Abbreviations:
hdc - half double crochet
sc - single crochet
ch - chain
st - stitch

These are a great way to use up some scrap cotton yarn.
