A talk: Everyday Face Mask Knitting Pattern and Covid

It's in the afternoon of March 17th, I surprised when I casually strolling into my Ravelry inbox and found some notifications of comments that all leave in the same knitting pattern: Everyday Face Mask.

Yes, I know, that time, Covid19 starts to rise and making many people anxious, and some of us even doing something that so unnecessary (like hoarding items we usually don't care before, that makes the people that actually need it now have difficulty to get it). Surgical masks that before Covid almost taken-for-granted item, now became a rare one and people start to search for a substitution mask.

Back to the comments that I found on the page. apparently, some people felt that my mask pattern will do harm to them, or maybe they try to prevent people do harm to themselves if they make this mask pattern. But what makes me sad was they decided to leave blunt comments that quite sound rude if the words being voiced.

The accusations made me want to explain about the pattern itself. Because really, this pattern does not have any connection with Covid19. It published years ago and even created more years back. I first made it for my husband in 2010 as first anniversary gift.

So I decided to write a disclaimer related to the pattern on the March,18th, that everyone can read when they visiting the page on Ravelry or Etsy.

I release this pattern back in 2017. The background of it was from my personal need. I am riding a motorcycle on a daily basis. I always need a mask to cover me from road dust and heat on the roads (also seek warm from the night wind). Sometimes I also want to cover my face when I have to go to public spaces (like a mall or social events). And since I am not sick, I feel that using a disposable surgical mask kind of a waste (I prefer to use them when I truly sick, because that’s the true function of the mask and it only can be used once). I also have a tendency to always touch my nose, so this mask really a big help for me to prevent me touch my own face. I frequently wash my knitted mask with my other clothes in the washing machine too to keep it always clean and fresh.

So, this mask is more to cover your face from dust, sun, cold weather or to cover your face without any particular medical reason. Like a knitting scarf, balaclava, or cowl.

About corona prevention:
in where I live now, I also one of the people that not fortunate enough to get a standard mask supply. So if you are fortunate to get hold of them, please only use them when you really need them since they are rare items now. Like I read on WHO site: the most effective way to protect yourself against Covid-19 is: frequently clean your hands, cover your cough with the bend of elbow or tissue, and maintain a distance of at least 1 meter (3 feet) from people who are coughing or sneezing.

I now bring hand sanitizer everywhere (this also became a rare item in my place), and always wash my hand with water and soap after doing almost anything. I also eat vitamin and herbs to maintain my immune system. And go out when I need it not when I want it.

I also try to help by giving some discount on the pattern, since I cannot make it free. My husband is a freelancer working from home and I am a full-time knitter. I try to help contribute to my family's income by selling knitting patterns I created. I am always thankful for every pattern sales. It will give our family foods to eat and rents and bills being paid.

Thank God, for the knitter that wants free mask patterns, can visit this page made by that diligently compiling great mask patterns for us to knit!

Now, using a cloth mask became mandatory if we want to go outside our house (for example grocery shopping). Many people take this as an opportunity to make and sell their handmade masks. But half of them also just make the mask without deep though of the function and comfort and jumped in for the easy money.

After tried couple of homemade cloth masks I bought online, my husband declared that the most comfortable one is the knitting mask I made for him. So I now try to make more for us and using the cloth mask I bought before as lining.


For you all knitter and crafter out there. It's very lucky that we can make ourselves what we need. We can make what we want with the exact specification we wanted too.

So if you can and have the time, make and make more. For ourselves and for people around us.

Don't forget to always be kind in what we write to others (especially if we do not know them personally). Remember that we are facing a real person behind the screen, that absolutely also have feeling like you. So try to talk gently and politely.

Always be careful, keep your health, and always be happy.

May us all survive this time together!

Happy Knitting!!

July Ravelry upload: Baby Deer Hat & Earflap Hat with Cat Ears

Good day for every knitters! :-)

Annual migration in my country just finished, and everything start back to normal.

Every year, when Eid Mubarak come, there will be e very long holiday. Everything essensial will closed, including offices and post/shipping. And almost everyone will traveling back to where their parents live. Including me.

For almost 2 weeks I barely touch my laptop. The first week, I preparing for my yarn's store closing, looking for tickets to our parents home, and then actually went home. Then when I finally can open my yarn store again, my assistants still couldn't back for another week for family matters. So me and my husbands had to deals with every online orders for a week.

Then, I am feeling guilty for absently posting new pattern in last June. So this month I posted 2 patterns. And as an apology for last month's absent, I decided to make one of the pattern, free only for today (12 to 13 July 2017).

And as usual, I give the patterns I uploaded this July, big discount (flat price $1.5) until end of the month, before they come back to their original prices.

Baby Deer Hat
free for today (12-13 July 2017)

This deer hat is one of my baby animal hats series. Normally made with solid color, but it turn out good with variegated color too. ;)

Earflap Hat with Cat Ears
Flat price $1.5 from original $5 until end of July 2017

few years ago I ever make a cat hat, but now, after some more experiences I through these last years, I feel more satisfied with this hat. I accidentally find again how to make an earflap that make me happy without have to make inner for it. And I love how the ears sturdier.

Please consider to try them if you feel interested. I will be nothing without your support. And your support will always be my fuel to continue writing knitting patterns.. faster than my original pace :p.

Thanks for your supports until today. :D

Knitting with Ajeng : Stranded Christmas Stocking Pattern

I made this Christmas stocking knitting pattern, inspired from [this] beautiful free knitting pattern.
For the motives, i took from my library collections of stranded-knitting projects.

  • Skill needed : know basic knitting, work in round a small circular project, follow stranded knitting chart, pick up and knit
  • Abreviations : DPN = Double Pointed Needle, CO = cast on, sts = stitch, stst = stockinette = knit all round, SSK = slip, slip, knit, K2Tog = knit 2 stitch together, kitchener stitch = seaming 2 part of life stitch together. (you can see how to do it [here] or by browse at google and youtube)
  • Material : any yarn that suitable for 4 mm DPN (see your yarn label) - Tips : You can use left over of your last project. I only need about 50gr of Red and 50gr of Green also a tiny bit of White SP Poyeng to made 3 socks!
  • Needle : set of 5 DPN 4 mm or use 23 cm circular needle 4 mm (one of some brand that made this size of circular is Clover)
  • Gauge : not so important since this is a home decoration
  • Finished size : mine were about 20 cm height from top edge to heels.

Pattern :

Rajut Free Knitting pattern : Baby Pom-pom Fisherman's Hat

I only tested this pattern once - and it while i wrote it! So please inform me if you find any errata to add :)

This pattern is so simple, even it made me feel guilty to write it, because i wrote the introduction longer than the pattern itself.

Since the gauge measured in stst and we knit in fisherman's rib, i consider that the gauge i wrote not so important for the pattern. I think it will safer to adjust your gauge to the finished size.

Needle             = 5.5 mm SPN
Yarn sugested  = about 80 gr of any lightweight yarn that suitable for the needle. (chunky)
- i used JPS yarn from Poyeng -
Gauge              = 10 cm = 15 sts/22 rows (in stst)
Finished size    = (before folding) 8 inches x 14 inches
 -baby up to 6 months old size after you fold it into a hat-

Fisherman's rib pattern=
Row 1 = [K1,P1] repeat
Row 2 = [K1, YO, Sl1] repeat
Row 3 = [(K2Tog on YO & slip st), YO, Sl1] repeat
Row 4 = Row 3
Repeat last row to end
note = Before you BO, do [(K2Tog on YO & slip st), P1] for 1 row

Picot edging =
[CO 3 sts with any simplest method you know, BO 9 sts, move remain 1 sts from Right Needle to Left Needle] repeat

Pattern =
  • CO = 26 sts (If you want to change the cast on, do it in multiple of two)
  • Do fisherman's rib pattern until 14 inches
  • BO
  • Fold the piece, seam both side.
  • Pick up all stitch along the new hat edge, do picot edging loosely.
  • Add big pom-pom at both top edging.
* * *
for the mitten, you can find the free knitting pattern at Spud&Chloe blog
I pick the pattern for the socks from Kristin Spurkland's book

* feel free to comment, you may use this pattern for free, but please read the intellectual property at this blog. thank you :)
