Step 3: Assemble

Picture of Assemble
Place the two sides together and sew around the edge leaving a bit of a gap to stuff it.

Stuff it with felt of other fluffy stuff then sew up the remaining edge

Cut away any fluff or remaining long wool bits you have left over

Attach two loops of wool to each side of the tips of the moustache. These must be long enough to fit over your ears.

Wear, look smart, pose and take photos for all to see!

These are awesome! I've made one for a Christmas present, and plan to make several more of different varieties. As a side note, I ended up using worsted weight yarn and size 2 needles. It did work, but it took some getting used to:P

First of all, I love this Instructable, it makes the most fantastic gift! However, while knitting my second mustache according to this pattern, I noticed that the instruction "K2tog(x2), K to last 2, K2tog" between the P9 and P7 on the second half of the mustache causes you to reduce by 3 knits instead of the 2 needed. Just a suggestion, but you may want to amend this to aid future mustache-makers. Once again though, fantastic Instructable and thank you for the pattern.
