It’s Movember!

No it’s not a typo, I did mean Movember.

Movember is an annual event that takes place during the month of November. Men are encouraged to grow moustaches/beards and not shave for the month (no matter how it looks) in order to raise awareness (and funding) of men’s health issues such as testicular cancer, prostate cancer and mental heath problems.

I have decided to share a crochet beard pattern I first designed several months ago. It came about as my husband needed to wear a beard to his friends stag do (but didn’t want to spend months growing it) – this is him posing! Others face painted theirs on or made them from material.

He was good enough to agree to his photo being included in the crochet beard pattern which is available as a pdf. So now anyone who can’t grow a beard or wants a quick beard for a costume can crochet one up quickly.

My girls thought the beard was hilarious so I made another one so that they both had one to play with.

Miss P said “Ho, ho, ho!” when wearing hers, I suppose you could do a ‘Santa’ beard if you modified it πŸ˜‰

So there you go, happy Movember!

  1. Wow this is fab. I am doing a MoRun on the 17th to raise money for this as I lost my dad to testicular cancer almost 20years ago. The MoRun organisers encourage runners to grow a Mo but being a girl I have a feeling I will struggle to grow one!!! (I hope lol!) This pattern would be perfect for me to make and run in. Thank you x

    1. Thank you for getting in touch. I’m so pleased to hear that the pattern will be of use to someone and for such a worthwhile cause too.

  2. Ha! Jean, you truly are the creative pixie!! Fantastic design, and the girls look so cute playing with theirs. The Santa beard sounds wonderful.

    Enjoy the weekend,

    1. Yeah, my girls love any excuse to dress up. During the summer Miss P loved getting on a high-vis jacket and hardhat to ‘work’ in the garden – she’s a strange pickle!
