Finger Moustaches

You know how sometimes, really cool people like you and me like to draw moustaches on their fingers and then hold them up to their face? I'm sure there are people out there who can remember Amy from the Big Bang Theory doing it when she took Leonard as a date to a wedding...

We can definitely all agree, hilarious.

But the issue is, having ink on your hand is beyond annoying. And we are all haunted by the memories of teachers at school telling us that we WILL get ink poisoning if we dare ever to draw on our skin. The solution?
Knitted finger moustaches

That's right folks, I have created three easy knitted finger moustache patterns for your fun and enjoyment.

You will need:
Two colours of dk wool - not much, this pattern is a great scrap buster. I went for black and white, but obviously, feel free to make yourself a pink or blue or purple or green moustache.
3mm DPNs or 3mm straight needles - You can use either, obviously the positive of using dpns is that you won't have to sew up at the end.
Darning needle - For sewing up (if you aren't using dpns) and weaving in

How to:
Below are three knitting charts for three different finger moustaches, choose your favourite, then keep reading.

Firstly, cast on 18 stitches.
If you are using straight needles, follow your chosen pattern above, using the stocking stitch.
If you are using dpns, whilst knitting your first row, transfer three stitches to each needle, continue knitting in the round, following your chosen pattern.

When you have completed the 18 rows, cast off. Sew up if you need to, and weave in the ends!

Top job. You now have a finger moustache. Below are some pictures of me very kindly modelling them for you.

Be sure to take them to weddings and any other serious and important social events for instant manliness and sophistication.
