How could I not I come up with a crochet pattern for a mustache?! I’m obsessed with crochet and I’m crazy about Movember. It was a match made in heaven!

This pattern is super simple. Perfect for a beginner. You only need to know the basic stitches and you’re all set. And it’s all about color. I started with black yarn, but decided that if you’re going to wear a mustache, you gotta go big and you gotta go bold.

So… I mustache you to crochet!!

3. Cut your yarn and slip stitch it through to tie it off. I also like to tie the two tails together once or twice just to bring the end together tight.

4. Hide your tails using your crochet needle. *You can simply cut your tails at the end, it doesn’t look that bad. But you run the risk of it coming apart at the tie. I suggest you take the time to hide your tails!

5. Cut a long piece of yarn and thread it through your crochet needle. On the back of your mustache, thread through 4-5 stitches to hold the yarn in place.
