Having to wear a face mask has unfortunately become our shared reality. We wanted to give you a pattern to cover the mask and make it look a bit more cheerful by using your favourite colors. It's also a nice gift for any loved ones that might need a pick-me-up. We are not taking the situation lightly, far from it. We are a very small family business and the current world situation has created big challenges for us like so many others. We still believe all of us need to feel positive once in a while.
This mask cover is also great in cold weather to cover your face while bicycling, riding, motorcycling etc.
The pattern will be FREE with a purchase of discounted Eco Cashmere yarn. If you buy two balls (enough for eight (8) mask covers) or more, we'll throw in free shippingas well!
INTENDED SOLELY FOR DECORATIVE PURPOSES - NOT A MEDICAL DEVICE
Note: if you want to make a mask cover for a man or if you just feel you need a lightly bigger mask cover, you can add loops to the ear loops of your mask.
The symbol on the pattern, Algiz, is an old Nordic symbol for protection. In the old Northern mythology, the teachers and mentors come in many forms and often test our humility and our readiness, requiring our attention and our unique ability to think for ourselves and integrate knowledge into the mix of our own associations and life experience.
It represents the courage we must exercise in order to face our fear of the unknown. The symbol was thought to give us the counter-phobic urge to move toward our fears and conquer them rather than be ruled by them.
