Easy Mask Lanyards Pattern

Updated: Jan 26

I have made so many of these little things since the craziness we like to call the creeping crud made mask wearing mandatory. My kiddos needed them in every color to match every outfit! Their friends then all needed them too and their parents and grandparents and so on.......

With masks being mandatory in schools again this year, I got hit with a major demand for more of these handy little helpers. It's so much better to just drop your mask than to take it off and lay it on a dirty surface, or lose it, during lunch or mask breaks. While I absolutely adore my original 8 lanyard patterns I realized if I was going to mass produce them I would need to have a simple option also. Not to mention the fact that I have a bazillion buttons around here and sometimes it's hard to locate the clasps when I need them.

I've created these 2 super simple lanyard patterns and am sharing them both here so all of you can make them too.

Here's what you'll need to get started:


100% Cotton yarn (approx. 30-50 yds total depending on size & style)

G (4mm) Hook



Lanyard Hooks(8x23 mm) for Style 1

2(20mm) Buttons for Style 2

Measuring Tape

Abbreviations(US Terms):

ST = Stitch

SL = Slip Stitch

CH = Chain

SC = Single Crochet

HDC = Half Double Crochet

YO = Yarn Over

Notes: Suggested length for kids is 16” to 18”, and for adult is 24” to 28”

Style 1:

Leave a long starting tail for use attaching your lanyard hook

To Begin CH to your desired length plus 1” ROUND 1: SC in the 2nd CH from the hook and in each ST across, place an additional SC in your last ST:

insert your hook, YO with your working yarn and your starting tail, pull up a loop with both yarns, YO both yarns, pull through pulling your starting tail all the way through,(see photo below)

place a 3rd SC in the last ST and rotate to work along the bottom of your starting CH, SC in each CH across, place an additional SC in the last ST, SL to your beginning SC to connect.

Cut leaving a long tail to attach your lanyard hook & tie off. Sew your hooks to either end and weave in your ends.

Style 2:

To Begin CH to your desired length plus 2”

ROUND 1: HDC in the 5th CH from the hook and in each ST across, CH 4, SL in the last ST. Cut, tie off & weave in your ends.

Attach a button about 6 sts in on either end.
