K-Pop Mask Knit Pattern

Tuesday, March 24, 2020

Are you a K-Pop fan? Then you are in good company cause I am an OG (original) K-popper. I guess it helps that I'm also of Korean decent so my parents listened to Korean music and I just grew up listening to it.

If you have missed out on the original K-Pop Mask (crochet version), you can find it HERE. It is a black K-Pop mask with an optional bear motif made using acrylic yarn.

The K-Pop Mask in this blog post is a knit pattern with a heart motif. Taking those with sensitive skin into consideration, I decided to design this mask with Lion Brand's 24/7 Cotton yarn. The mask is more rigid with this yarn so if you decide to knit this one and don't necessarily have sensitive skin, you can choose to knit with a different yarn that's close to the given gauge for this pattern.

I want to note here before you decide to buy this premium pattern that the K-Pop Masks (crochet and knit) are in no way, shape or form able to protect you against the Coronavirus. IT WILL NOT PROTECT YOU FROM THE CORONAVIRUS. This mask is strictly a K-Pop fan mask. 


To purchase this pattern, please visit Etsy.

I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty late in the game with becoming a fan of BTS. I've always been more stuck with the older K-Pop groups and Eric Nam (of course). If you don't follow me on Instagram then you probably didn't see this photo: 

OR this one:

YES! I finally met my favorite K-Pop artist of all time last month and gave him a mostly Tunisian crochet blanket of his logo that I personally made for him. 

How did it feel to meet the K-Pop artist I admire the most? Pretty surreal! I had so much to say and so little time. I literally blanked out and tried to spat out most of the important things I wanted to tell him. But the one thing I forgot to tell him was my name! HAHAHA. Will he remember my face? I have no idea but I truly hope that he will.

In the comments below, let me know who your favorite K-Pop artist is! I would love to know!

Until next time, happy knitting!

The K-Pop Mask

Saturday, December 15, 2018

I had no idea how worldwide K-pop (Korean pop) and K-drama were nowadays. I really didn’t see it coming. Growing up, watching k-drama was only possible by renting them out on VHS from a local Korean store. Now, it’s on Netflix, Amazon, Viki, and so on and so on. Who would have thought? I certainly didn’t.

This past summer I went to my first k-pop concert with my aunt and mom. I really wanted to see Eric Nam, also a Korean-American, who made it in the music industry in Korea. I was expecting Korean people to show up at this concert only to find myself being the minority of the bunch. It was amazing. I felt proud to be a Korean and grateful that other ethnicities were there to support a Korean singer.

A month later I made a visit to the bank to open up a new account. As usual, I made small talk with the manager responsible of opening accounts. She asked me what my ethnicity was and when I told her I was Korean she literally jumped out of her seat repeatedly saying that she wanted to live in Korea. Then she proceeded to tell me that both of her little girls were into K-pop and K-drama and going on and on about Korean “stuff”.

If you follow these K-pop and K-drama celebrities, you must know about these black masks they wear all the time, right? To be honest, wearing a mask in Korea is not really out of the norm. When I lived in Korea for three and a half years, there were plenty of occasions where I wore them. I wore them mostly when I was sick and didn’t want to spread my germs, but also when I had to walk out and didn’t want to show my bare face. And you know what? That’s exactly why k-pop stars wear them. Oh, and of course trying not to get spotted out in public. But really, how can you not get spotted? You’re a celebrity.

Anyways, I thought that this would be a great quick project to do especially with the flu season in and the winter months upon us.

If you happen to read this in the spring to fall months, this would also make a great mask to avoid breathing in pollen during the allergy season.
