We like this Sarah Maker pattern, which has some excellent descriptions about materials and what the features of the mask provide in functionality. Well worth reading. This pattern does not use a side channel for the cords, but that can be added if you wish. If you are a reasonably skilled stitcher, you can try adding the gusset that the Salts & West pattern uses.
