A crochet pattern for PPE Face Mask Adaptors, designed to help alleviate the sores that mask elastic can cause by wearing them for such a great length of time and also to enable a tighter fit, has been added under Nimble Knitters. The original pattern was posted on Facebook and the creator was inundated with requests hence the message to spread the request for any help possible. There is a message at the end of the pattern re checking to see if the intended recipient organisation’s protocols allow them to be worn.
