I knitted this today. I'm quite obsessed with moustaches.

It's just an intarsia moustache on a rectangle of stocking stitch sew up one side.

Very simple, very quick, very moustachy.

I want to make a couple of different styles, so I'm gonna post them in this thread too.


The toothbrush moustache.

EDIT: Pattern of sorts:

Needles and yarn:
3mm needles.
8ply in black and another colour.

Difficulty: So very simple. As long as you're cool with a bit of colourwork.

Size: 5.5cm long by 6.5cm circumference.

Tension: 5.5 stitches = 2cm
8 rows = 2cm
This doesn't need to be perfect. You can always add extra rows (or skip them).

Actual pattern:
Cast on 17st.
Work 9 rows in stocking stitch.
Do the colourwork using The Chart(TM)
Work 9 rows in stocking stitch.
Cast off.

The Chart(TM):

The walrus.


The toothbrush

Sew your cast on to your cast off, weave in the ends. Wear, look ridiculous.

Additional notes: You can cast on with a provisional cast on and graft the ends together if you're keen.
And you can duplicate stitch on the pattern, just work 4 rows where it should be and add it later.
Feel free to add or remove rows if you need to.

Other bit:
Only I'm allowed to sell stuff made with this pattern, okay? Cool. Also, I'd love to see photos of what you've made.

That's hilarious. They're called fingerstaches, though.

Next time I catch a train I'm gonna moustache at people.

I never knew it but it turns out I'm in desperate need of a fingerstache!  This is hysterical.  Love it.

You'd need one eyebrow on each hand so you could raise one.
