Is it a Hat, is it a Wig?

My latest variation of one of my basic hat/wig patterns.

Here is the originalcrochet wig

I have added rows of DK yarn in between the main rows of the chunky yarn.crochet chemo wig

I’m thinking I might make another with multicolured yarns of all different weights – it could be a great stash-buster.

The hat/wigs have been worn for fancy dress:  a multi-coloured one, modelled here by my lovely daughter-in-law

They have been bought for wearing in college plays, as fun chemo wigs, by my nephew and his mates on a zany night out and of course Halloween

Cruella Deville anyone

The book I am re-reading and the moment is  Tao of Pooh

An oldie but goodie.

These here wigs!!!!!

Who’d-a-thought it!

A lovely woman called Sue asked me to be a Guest Blogger on her Crochet Addict site.

I have never done anything like that before and it was fun to put together.

In the piece I wrote, amongst other things, I  posted pictures of my latest hat/wig designs

I think the one above has a sort of Jane Austen look about it – do you?

(apologies for feeble attempt at digital clown make-up!)

And they seem to be getting a lot of attention and some lovely comments so far from Melissa and Cathy

The patterns can be found in the Etsy Shop and on Ravelry.

Ravelry is a site for all things to do with knitting and crochet.

(You have to register with Ravelry to look at pages on there).

It took me a while to work out how the site works and how to sell patterns. But one advantage of having some horrid bug which has kept me away from doing other things (I’ve been in bed most of the week – yuck!), is that I have had time to spend on the computer and despite my brain being fuddled by a temperature etc, I managed to get to grips with Ravelry.

Which has been very exciting because the hat/wigs seem to be making people smile and they are having fun with them and imagining all sorts of occasions for them – halloween being a favourite. I love the zany craziness of it and can’t wait to see pictures posted of my wigs being worn in far flung places!

Hat/Wigs are taking off!!!!
