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.

This is the best thing I've seen in forever. Cheesy
I'm always drawing the fingetstaches on, but it's kinda an awkward angle. lol.
Now all you need is differnt styles and colors of mustaches and you'd have yourself and empire. Cheesy

That's too funny! I actually have those same types of moustaches tattooed on my fingers! (I had only seen one other person with one when I got mine- I thought about it for a looooong time before I actually did it) The toothbrush one also doubles as a soul patch. I love having them, but in hindsight, maybe I should have tried something like this first...

Haha! This thread gave me a laugh. Thanks guys.

I saw a video on youtube where one of the girls had drawn on a mustache on tape and put it above her lip. I had pretty much decided to wear the same to work tomorrow. Until they tell me to take it off because it may fall in the food. That will be a sad moment..

These are great!  I think it'd be wonderful to make a bunch for a costume party grab bag sort of thing.  Then anyone who didn't dress up can have fingerstaches.

You gave me a great idea for our New Year's party! It is about time some of my stuffy friends let loose a bit and have some silliness in their lives!

all of you models with your mustaches are just too cute!
