It’s amazing how creative (and sometimes kooky) people get with knitting and crochet. At this past Maker Faire, we ran into a guy with a full crochet mustache and beard, given to him by his girlfriend because he couldn’t grow his own.

Now, knitters can get in on the action too! Our friends at Craft Magazine point us to a fun project: click here for directions for a knitted mustache from Instructables user Holly2.

It might be a great way to get a jump start on your Halloween costume!
