Knit Your Own Moustache
Knit Your Own Moustache:
Create 20 knit and crochet disguises
By Vicky Eames
Published by Pavilion Books, April 2014
My youngest daughter loves the current fashion for items decorated with moustaches and I initially asked to review this book thinking it would give me ideas on how to whip up a few very basic knitted moustaches for her to stick on folders etc. I did not expect to find that there was so much more in this excellent little book!
Full and easy instructions are given on how to create classic, handlebar and walrus moustaches, the Sven, the Dali and even a Groucho Marx disguise on a stick, complete with glasses, a colourful Rasta hat, an eye patch, a loopy long sailor's beard, a knitted brown paper bag to put on your head and a blue rinse wig.
Whether you want to crochet your own bandit mask, knit your own animal ears, create a bald head type wig or look like Pippi Longstocking with pigtails, this book is priceless and will show you how :-)
