Instructions

Base Rectangle
Chain 39 stitches.
Use one stitch as the original turning stitch, then single crochet 10 rows of 38 stitches.
Fasten off.

Semi-circles
Join with a sl st in the 8th stitch from the edge.
From this position, fanstitch 7 sc into the 9th stitch.
Once this is done, sc around the fan, being careful to anchor each row into the main rectangle, so that it makes a joined-up fabric.
It will take around 7 lines of sc until the end of the semi circle met up with the end of the base rectangle.
Repeat this step on the other side. It should leave a nose sized gap in the middle.
SC around the entire mask in a contrasting color to hold everything together and give it a nice edge.

Owl Eyes
The eyes are just a crocheted circle ending up with 42 stitches.
Then do one round in brown and the next in white with 6 picot stitches to create a ruffle.
The inside of the eye is just a loosely embroidered diamond.

Beak
The eyes are just a crocheted circle ending up with 42 stitches.
Then do one round in brown and the next in white with 6 picot stitches to create a ruffle.
The inside of the eye is just a loosely embroidered diamond.

Finishing
Sew all of the pieces onto the mask using yarn in the appropriate colors and a yarn needle.
