Mustache fetish

Hey you!

You probably already noticed, I have a thing for mustaches. If Mr. L would let me, I would put a mustache on everything! So I took my plain IKEA jar and customized it! I use mine for pens instead of kitchen use, so it looks great on my desk!

This is how it looked before:

This is how it turned out:


If you have a similar jar, you can make a cozy for it too! It's the "ORDNING" Cutlery caddy, stainless steel from IKEA and I wrote down the pattern. I wrote it in US crochet terms and hooked with a 3,5 mm hook.

  1. Chain 4 and join to form a ring.
  2. Chain (Ch.) 3 in to the ring followed by 10 double crochets (dc). Join with a slip stitch to the top of the ch. 3
  3. Ch. 3, dc in the same stitch. Increase in each stitch, so 2 dc in each stitch. Join with a slip stitch in the top of the ch. 3.
  4. Ch. 3, dc in the same stitch. *1 dc, 2 dc in the following stitch* Repeat from * until the last stitch and join with a slip stitch.
  5. Ch. 3, dc in the same stitch. * 2 dc, 2 dc in the following stitch* Repeat from * until the last stitch and join with a slip stich.
  6. Ch. 1, Single Crochet (sc) in the same stitch.* 3 sc, 2 sc in the following stitch* Repeat from * until the last stitch and join with a slip stitch.
  7. Ch. 3 and dc only in the back loops. Check here to see what the back loop is if you have never done this.
  8. Dc in all stitches for 10 rounds
  9. sc around in the last round and fasten off.
I attached a mustache on the thing with velt, but you can leave it blank or use different colours yarn or attach buttons on it.

Have a nice end of your weekend!

  1. Ahw geweldig, met die snor erop!
    Ik vind het altijd leuk om gehaakte cadeautjes te geven. Ik merk dat de meeste mensen ook eigenlijk altijd wel blij worden van iets zelfgemaakts. Inderdaad vooral als het speciaal voor hen gemaakt is!
    Ik heb even niets over je streepjes deken kunnen vinden, wat voor kleur wordt het? Met 3.0 ben je inderdaad wel even zoet, maar dan wordt het vast heel mooi! Een heerlijk patroon vind ik het, wat je zegt, gewoon gaan! Streep, streep, streep...
    En vanmiddag ga ik je vogeltjes paperclip maken, want die vind ik ook echt super :)
    Heb een fijne week! xx
