Knit a Movember Moustache

Movember is such a good cause but (in most cases) for us girls growing a ‘tache is pretty impossible so why not knit one instead? They only take twenty minutes or so and you can sell them for £1 each to raise money for the charity.

The pattern to knit your own moustache is as follows:

I used DK wool and 4mm needles. Cast on 1 st leaving a long tail of thread so you can tie the moustache in place.

2. Purl 2
3. Knit 1, knit 1 front and back
4. Purl 3
5. K1, Knit 2 front and back

As you can see by my efforts below, you can match them to various hair colours and, in Lorna’s case, can accessorise with a pout and a beehive! Sorry for the blurry picture, it’s a candid office snap! We used the moustaches for a jumper shoot at work, main image courtesy of BANK Fashion
