Sanitary masks are part of everyone's life, at least for the moment. They are a complement that accompanies us at all times and sometimes, when we can take it off, we need to put it somewhere that does not pose a risk.
Putting the mask on your wrists, elbows or keeping it in your bag or pocket can be dangerous because they lose effectiveness. Therefore, having this type of utensil to hold the masks in a safe place is one more measure of protection against the virus. Today I show you how to make this simple felt chain to hold the mask around your neck.
Yarn chain for the mask
T-shirt yarn is a very elastic, soft and manageable material, therefore, it is the best option when creating this chain to hold the masks. let's see now what materials do we need and what are the steps to follow.
- Material of t-shirt yarn of the desired color
- Hitches carabiner type
- Un metro
First we have to cut 3 strips of yarn of about 20 centimetersyes each. We insert the ends of the three strips through the hole of the carabiner.
We make a knot with the three ends and we tighten well, as the yarn is very elastic we will get a very thin knot. We cut the excess of the ends, do not be afraid, it will not come undone.
To facilitate the work we fix the trapillo with a piece of tape adhesive. We begin to make a braid using the 3 yarn ends.
The braid must be tight so that it is nice and well defined. reaching the end leave about 5 centimeters unbraided.
We insert the ends of the yarn braid through the hole of the second carabiner. We make a knot in the same way that we did on the opposite side. We cut the leftovers and that's it, we can now attach the carabiners to the elastics of the mask. You can create as many mask chains as you like, even kids can make their own.
