Next, cut the top of the sock open to get a greater surface area for your mask.

Fold the sock and make a slit. Make sure you aren’t cutting the side with the heel. This slit will make your two ear holes in your easy to make facemask.

    I have very sensitive skin + rosacea on my cheeks & most face masks irritate my skin.

    I wanted to try this, to use inside my usual mask, to see if it would minimize the irritation. Used a soft material socks & made several masks. It works for me, I now have a soft, knit lining for a two ply mask. Much kinder to my skin. Easy to follow instructions. Many thanks to the person who posted the instructions. Alice T.
