**R3. INC, SC 1 around (18) **This round is optional** For an extra big moustache, you can add one more round here.
R3 or R4. DC 1, then CH 3.
– F/O and leave a tail to sew the c to the taco shell, always hide your stitches on the inside.

– Use the backside of the moustache (not the front)
1. Fold the shell in half. Position both sides of the moustache so they are centered on the shell. Pin
them in place.
2. Sew the little tail from R4 (the CH 3) so that it turns up a bit.
3. Continue to sew all the way around the moustache.
4. Repeat with the other side.

Once the moustache is secured, add the eyes one round above.


– Add the ingredients in any order (as you wish). For this taco, I added lettuce, meat and then the tomatoes at the back.
– Use yellow thread to sew everything in place. Try to match the color to the taco shell.
1. Sew the lettuce to the front of the shell, then sew the meat to the lettuce.
2. Sew the tomatoes to the back of the shell.
3. Close the taco and sew both sides together, making sure to secure the ingredients inside.

– To turn your Taco Kawaii into a keychain, use a simple Lark’s Head Knot, commonly used for making jewelry and macrame.
1. Make a loop of any length and knot the end.
2. Use your crochet hook to pull it through the center of the taco. I looped it through the tomatoes and meat inside the taco shell (to hide this end), but you can also secure it to the outside of the shell.
3. Slip the knotted end through the loop and pull tight.
