After trying out some different styles of masks, I decided that I needed to create a new pattern to combat the issues my family was having with the other designs.

This pattern is free for distribution, so please feel free to share it with others who might benefit from these features:
- Soft seal edge helps prevent glasses from fogging up and keeps moisture inside of the mask.
- Sits further away from nose and mouth, making it easy to talk, and better for people who can’t tolerate constriction.
- Doesn’t use “ear strap”, which can cause bruising, chafing, and cracking of the soft tissue behind the ear.
