Fu-Manchuesdays

Coffea Island is offering 50% off your drinks on Tuesdays if you come in with a Fu Manchu mustache. Since I never turn down a chance for cheap crack coffee, I decided to knit up a mustache with some scrap yarn.

Fu Manchu Mustache

Materials:
2 US 5 dpns
Scrap worsted weight yarn
small crochet hook
tapestry needle
adhesive of your choice

Pattern Notes:
This pattern is worked in two pieces as an i-cord from beginning to end. At the end of the wider part you will pick up the bars in the back of the i-cord as pictured here.

Pattern (make 2):
CO 8 sts
Rnds 1-9: Knit
Pick up I-cord ladder and place stitch at beginning of needle.
Rnd 10: K6, (k2tog) 3 times
Rnd 11: K2, (k2tog) 2 times
Rnds 12-26: knit
Rnd 27: k2tog twice
Rnd 28: Knit
Cut tail and pull tight through 2 remaining stitches. Weave in ends and attach to your face with the adhesive of your choice. For more shapability, place a pipe cleaner inside the tube before weaving in the ends.
