Sunday evening, I knitted a beard for a small boy who loves pirates and wanted a beard to complete his pirate outfit.
I used a part ball of some fluffy black wool, I cast on 18 stitches, knitted ’til the beard was about 4 or 5 inches long. Next row I knit 6 cast off 6 then knit 6. Next row, knit 6 cast on 6 knit 6, I knitted another few rows to make the tash. Elastic across the back to hold it on and there you have it, a knitted beard.
