This is day 21 of the Corona Virus pandemic and we are all in self isolation. During this time, I have been approached by nurses to make some relief items. Below you will find a pattern that is a headband where they can loop their surgical masks' ear loops behind their head instead of around the ears to provide them relief. I made these using 100% cotton yarn and sew buttons onto the end. My recommendation on yarn would be Lily Sugar n' Cream Cotton or Bernat Handicrafter Cotton.
