This is the easiest crochet beard! After making many different beards I wanted to design a very simple pattern with a great result!
You can make this within an hour!
The beard is designed for the ends to slip over your ears so you can wear this with any hat you already have or you can easily sew it into any hat.
Guaranteed fun and laughs but is also practical to wear skiing, snow blowing the driveway…anything outdoors!
Also makes a great Santa beard in white for the holidays!

Holding 3 strands together (2 strands together for bulky weight yarn), fold in half, pull up a loop along the bottom and top stitches of the beard (excluding the top of the mouth) and pull all strands through.
For top lip of mustache:
Cut 3 strands 57, 50, 37″ long (for adult, toddler/child and baby sizes). Holding strands together (2 strands for bulky weight yarn), fold in half, pull up a loop on the top right end of the lip of the mustache and slip stitch across.
Weave end in and out of the beard, ending with the strands out and blend into beard.
Cut 20 strands about 60, 50, 40″ long (adult, toddler/child, baby) and tie off at the top. Braid the entire piece and knot at the bottom. Position the braid on the lip of the beard. Cut a piece of the same color of yarn and sew across the middle lip. Fasten off and weave in end.
