A ski mask will cut the wind and keep sensitive facial skin from dangerous overexposure to cold temperatures. Stay warm in style with an inexpensive fleece ski mask. Fleece ski masks are so affordable that you might even make several to give yourself a variety of colour choices for your outerwear. These directions will make an adult-size ski mask. Make the dimensions approximately 2 inches smaller to make a child-size ski mask.

  1. 1

    Draw a pattern with pencil and paper following the diagram. The length from top to bottom is 12 inches. The width from side to side is 7 inches. Round the top, making it wider in the upper back and then taper it down to the bottom neck edge. Cut out a notch 1 1/2 inches wide for the face portion. Cut out the pattern.

    Fold the fleece with right sides facing in and place the pattern onto the folded fleece with the indicated fold edge of the pattern against the fold of the fleece. Pin the pattern to the fleece and cut around the pattern. Remove the pins.

    Keep the fleece folded with right sides facing in. Begin stitching at the top edge at the face notch and stitch around the upper edge, around the upper back and down to the bottom edge using a 1/2-inch seam allowance. Do not stitch the neck edge.
