Sleep mask

I made this sleepmask for an insomniac friend of mine. The picture doesn’t do it justice – the shape of it is much more even & symmetrical than it looks and it works pretty well at keeping the light out. The mask also includes a tie at the back.

Things I learnt:

1) I actually made this twice – the first time I had used a bigger crochet hook which let in more light (as the gaps were bigger), which defeated the object of a sleepmask! So the trick is to crochet tightly with a small hook so that the stitches are closely packed together.
