Lined Knit Face Mask Pattern
This free knit face mask includes an extra layer of protection from airborne diseases.
With everything so unpredictable these days, it's nice to know that our knitting is always there for us. While the typical open weave of a knit face mask may not protect you from viruses, when it's lined with fabric like this Lined Knit Face Mask Pattern, it both serves as a helpful tool to keep you healthy as well as a way to keep your face warm while you're out running errands or taking the dog for a walk in the winter time. We highly recommend knitting a bunch of these (preferably in all your favorite colors!) so you always have one on-hand while you're washing the others.
