Step 1

Leave a 30cm tail of yarn when you make the first chain stitch; this will eventually be used to sew the mustache together.
 
Row 1: Make a chain of 10 stitches, then slip in the first stitch you made, giving you a loop. (10 stitches in this row)
Row 2: Double crochet in the first three stitches, single crochet in two, then slip in three, then single crochet in two. The purpose of these manipulations is to make the work bend. (10)
Row 3: Repeat instructions for row 2. (10)
Row 4: Repeat instructions for row 2, EXCEPT continue to slip for the last two stitches, rather than single crochet. (10)
Row 5: Slip in the first three stitches. Single crochet in the next two stitches, double crochet in three, and then single crochet in the remaining two stitches. (10)
Row 6: Repeat instructions for row 5. (10)
Row 7: Slip in the first three stitches. Now decrease over the next two stitches, turning them into one. Double crochet in the next three, and then decrease again over the remaining two stitches. (8)
Row 8: Slip in the first three stitches. Decrease over the next two stitches, turning them into one. Double crochet in the next three stitches. (7)
Row 9: Single crochet in the first stitch. Then decrease over the next two, turning them into one. Single crochet in the next stitch, then decrease again, and finally single crochet in the last stitch. (5)
Row 10: Decrease over the next two stitches. Single crochet in the next two stitches. (4)
Row 11: Decrease over the next two stitches. Then single crochet in the last stitch, cut the yarn and tie it off. Work the end of the yarn back into the fabric so you can’t see it anymore.

Step 2

You now have one half of the moustache! Now repeat the instructions to make the other, and sew them together with a yarn needle, first row to first row, to form the shape shown. Instructions for adding loops or ribbons and for the other two mustaches can be found at
