Slip Knot Tie Masks

By: Joy Buckingham from
Slip Knot Tie Mask
Slip Knot Tie Mask

"This is a new quick design for yet another mask that's easy, comfortable, faster and cheaper to make. It's worn on the ears without buying elastic or acquiring Tshirts to make yarn. It fits as tight as needed and does not slip off by using the slip knot to adjust quickly. Works great for folks with limited shoulder range who are unable to tie something behind their head. Of course it takes less time to make a 22 inch tie rather than a 45 inch tie. This tutorial also contains some more time saving tips."

NotesThis is my design. I've not seen it online anywhere. This came about because I couldn't tie the mask behind my head. Several of the people I made masks for said they were tying to put around their ears as well. I was striving for a way to save time and thought, "Why am I spending so much time on ties that people aren't using?" Thus, I accidentally tied this knot that slips. Another, "Necessity is the mother of invention" situation.
