Crochet Mustache Pattern




This is the first pattern I typed up, so there might be some errors. You can use this pattern, but you can't sell it or claim it as your own! I made it up and I took the time to write it up, so please respect that! You may link to this, but don't copy and paste the whole thing to your own blog or site! You can make as many mustaches from this as you want to give away or keep. You can sell some of these if the proceeds will go to a charity, but not if they will go to yourself or a company.

allrighty, this pattern is made in a continuous spiral, a la amigurumi style.

materials:
- acrylic worsted weight yarn(i think, i dunno might need to be thinner yarn) in color of choice (yes it has to be acrylic unless you want wool scratching up against your face if you wear it)

- a G/6-4.25mm hook


~first off, make a magic loop (OR chain 2)

~in loop (or 2nd chain from hook), make 4 sc (4)

~ 1 sc in each st (4)

~ *2 sc in next st, 1 sc* twice (6)

~ 2 sc in next st, 1 sc around. (7)

~ 1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in last stitch of rnd. (11)

~ 2 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, 2sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc in last st (15)

~ 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 5 sts, sc 2 tog (dec), sc in next 6 sts (14?)

~ 1 sc in next 8 st, sc 2 tog (dec), sc in next 5 st (13)

~ sc next 2 st together, 1 sc in next 5 st, sc 2 tog, 1 sc in next 5 sts

~ sc next 2 tog, 1 sc in next 4 st, sc 2 tog, 1 sc in next 4 sts

~ sc next 2 tog, 1 sc in next 8 sts

halfway done! this is the thinnest part of the 'stache

~ 2 sc in next st, 1 in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 5 st

~ 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 4 st, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 5 st

~ 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 5 st, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 6 st

~ 1 sc in first 8 sts, 2 sc's in next st, 1 sc in next 4 st, sc 2 together.

~ sc 2 tog, 1 sc in next 11 sts, sc 2 tog

~ sc 2 tog, sc 2 tog, 1 sc in next 7 st, sc 2 tog

~ sc 2 tog, 1 sc in next 7 st, sc 2 tog

~ 1 sc in next 2 st, sc 2 tog, 1 sc in next 2 st

~ sc 2 tog, 1 sc, sc 2 tog, sc 2 tog

~ 1 sc in each st, you should have 4. slip stitch in next st, finish off.

when folded in half, it should be symmetrical.


you can stuff the mustache and add a face to have a toy mustache, or you can leave it unstuffed and add it to something and

wear it on your face. it's your mustache! do what you want!


some ideas i came up with a stuffed mustache, is that it looks a bit like a tamarind pod if it's dark brown, or it could also look like a poo. In asia (i think korea or japan), they have some poo's with faces on em and people think they're cute lol.

I'm having so much trouble with this pattern for some reason. Could you explain it any differently?

I followed the directions and I now have a little thing that looks like a pile of poo. GROSS I know. I wonder what I did wrong?!?!?

Andrea said...

Hey Pinkpolishgirl, I think maybe your tension is too tight?

I think this is a good pattern to make something creative specially when our children love these things, actually my friend who works in online pharmacy recommended me this blog and I'm really grateful with him.
