FO: Winter Moustache

Rocking a bear-stache?

Details

Project Name: Winter Moustache

Pattern: Incognito by Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark in Knitty, Winter 2009, the Mellow Version

Recipient: A good friend, who enjoys wearing a mustache

Yarn: Knit Picks Swish Worsted in Lemongrass (MC), Copper (CC1) and Black (CC2)

Modifications:

  • Knit at a tighter gauge to help resist the Toronto winds, and as a result cast on an additional 16 stitches to come up with a medium size.
  • Made the “top ” cuff extra long to fully cover the duplicate stitch area, to give extra warmth and make it smoother.

New Skills:

  • Duplicate Stitch: It was a bit challenging to wrangle at first, but I got the hang of the stitch by the end.  I would certainly use this technique again if called for.
  • Sewing in a lining: Fairly straight forward, I just sorta did it (rather than doing research) and I would most certainly use this technique again.

Feedback: It was a fun, easy knit for a friend who I know will love it. Like all Knitty patterns, the pattern is interesting and desirable.

Re-Knit?:  Only if there is call to replace this one or make another upon request.
