Crochet Moustache Pattern – Version 2

Following on from the popularity of my first crochet moustache pattern, I’ve been working on a second design, which is a little more bulkier and reminiscent of a sheriff’s moustache.

I chose to design this one using the symbols method, which I found was a lot easier when working out the shape.

After 5 versions to fine tune the shape I’m happy with the final result.

The moustache will need blocking into shape with a water spray or for a stiffer finish use a starch spray.
