Cool idea!

Advert - Need a moustache in a hurry? Going to France? Going to a gay bar? Dont waste time trying to grow one, just slap on a Moustachio Finger and awaaay you go!
That's hilarious. They're called fingerstaches, though.

Next time I catch a train I'm gonna moustache at people.
33  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fingerstaches are pretty cool. (}: (NOW WITH 15% MORE PATTERN!) on: May 09, 2009 03:21:15 AM

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.

Wow...that is fantastic! Can we expect a Bow or a Sword next?
I made a dagger last time.

I've had a request for a flail. Then I think I'll do a crossbow. Then we'll see.

Thanks guys, I'm glad you like it.

Axey was a lot of fun to make. I didn't use a pattern.

So much bigger inside it holds 20,000 songs!

This is really quite adorable.

If you turn it inside-out is it still bigger on the inside?

This axe was forged from the yarn of blue by the great and noble Megan. It was gifted unto the Captain of all Daves for his birthday of 23. The Lady Megan underwent many dangerous challenges in order to create and deliver this weapon. First was misshapen prototype of yore, followed by the theives who attempted to steal this precious artifact. Such a cutesy device was coveted by all in the land and many cuddles were stolen before it could be delivered to the Captain.

This double bladed battle axe does d8 damage and has the added bonus of +1 to cuddly and ridiculous. It grants the wielder the perk of "Sheer Awesome". Note: You must be proficient in knitted weaponry to wield it.

I've been watching far more than my fair share of Battlestar Galactica lately and ended up making this.



I still need to sew the shooty laser bit on and take photos in the daylight.

You didn't! /me gasps!

You're the coolest person I've heard about all day.

I need one of these.

EDIT: This is the first time I've ever pressed the "This Rocks" button.
