Santa Face Mask for Kids – Free Crochet Pattern
Christmas is coming and it’s the season to stay safe!
Get your mustache on with the merriest Santa Face Mask ever that features the best Santa mustache and stay Santa-stically safe!!
The crochet Santa Face Mask will keep your kids safe while they celebrate their favorite holiday!
One important thing to note is that crochet or knit face masks are not medical grade. These masks cannot prevent, treat, reduce, or even cure any health condition, including COVID-19. They are just for the purpose of discouraging you from touching your face all the time.
For better protection, you can use these crochet masks over the medical-grade mask so that it looks cute and fancy!
The crochet Santa Face Mask is easy to make and the crochet pattern is beginner-friendly. If you have an understanding of basic crochet stitches, you’ll be able to make one in a short duration!
To make the Santa Face Mask, you need to use cotton yarn as it is more durable and washable. Cotton yarn is also gentle on the skin so there is no risk of skin irritation if your kids are wearing it directly with a filter.

The completed Santa Face Mask is perfect for 3 to 7 year old kids!
- 5.0 mm (US H / 8) for the face mask, 4.0 mm (US G / 6) for the mustache crochet hook from Clover
