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

An oldie but goodie.

Fun way to keep your ears warm this Winter

Wigs and patterns have been flying off the shelves of my Etsy shop, so I am busy making brown3 more and improving the patterns as I go.

I’ve had some fun requests too which I can’t share with you yet – but hopefully when I have perfected to new designs I will be able to tell you all about it.

Let me know if you have any crazy ideas for styles of wigs I could make.brown

Looking forward to creating new designs in January when I take my knitting needles all the way to Abu Dhabi for some winter sun, R and R and a sort of knitting retreat – can’t wait!brbac

I’ve done it!!

Ha! I’ve done it – created a PDF knitting pattern – what a task! – hopefully I have learnt a lot and the next one will not take so long!

Flick Wig

and it is now in my Etsy shop – this feels very exciting!

The file is still 2MB (better than the original 8MB) – if anyone knows if I can reduce the file size without compromising the quality, I’d love to hear from you.

Phew! A coffee and a bit of calm easy knitting is called for.
