Ideas:
I didn’t do this but I think it would be neat to add a little pipe cleaner into the stash so that you can curl the ends tighter or looser and they will stay in place nicely.
I was also thinking it would be fun to use some brown wool yarn you can brush to make the mustache furry looking. Here is a good tutorial on wool brushing:

    I love this crocheted moustache! I recently learned how to crochet but am not good enough yet for this pattern unfortunately. Any chance you’re making a movie tutorial out of it sometime :D?

    Sweeet! This will make the perfect gift for my mustache obsessed friends! Liked your suggestion about putting in pipe cleaner to curl the ends. I just finished putting together my Christmas wreath so I used the wire and it worked perfectly!

    This pattern is great! How would I go about making the finished product bigger? I am hoping to be able to make a small to medium mustache shaped pillow.

      I would imagine a larger hook and thicker yarn could help, but I could be wrong. Good luck!

      So it should go like this: SC, 2SC, SC, SC, 2SC, SC, SC, 2SC, SC, SC, 2SC, SC

      If you do it just like that you’ll end up with 16 stitches :)
