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.

Crochet Moustache

After working up the fantastic moustache crochet coffee cup holder yesterday from Busy in Brooklyn’s blog, I decided to try my hand at a few pattern variations on the moustache   I wanted to crochet a moustache in one piece that allowed for more curlier ends. After 3 or 4 goes I think I have the perfect tash.  Why not give it a go and get your self the perfect Mo-Sista fake crochet tash.

Crochet Movember

It seems the high streets have gone moustache crazy these last few months, and what better a time to embrace these furry face funnies than during Movember.  Thanks to the wonders of Instagram I stumbled upon a pattern for a fantastic crochet moustache cup holder through a new blog find Busy In Brooklyn.

My first attempt wasn’t exactly the well coiffured facial buddy I was hoping for, however as ever I endeavour to practise, practise, practise! If you want to get your mitts on one of these moustache coffee cup crochet beauties you can find the pattern I used at:
