Fun Striped Wig Crochet Pattern

 so it is very easy to adjust to any size.

The Tester Wigs 
Turned out amazing!

Please, take a moment and 
show this pattern some 


Skill: Easy

Materials:
 I Hook
Yarn Needle
Any Worsted  Weight yarn ( 4) 3.5 oz.
I used Red Heart Super Yarn

Stitches:
Chain ( ch)
Slip Stitch (sl st)
Single Crochet ( sc)
Half Double Crochet (hdc)
Blo ( Back Loop only

4 sc rows = 1 inch , 4 sc = 1 inch

Pattern is sized For Child 16-17 inches 
and (Adult) 19-20 inches

Note : Ch 1 at end of rows does not count as a st.
St counts are at the end of each row.

The colors and placement of stripes is totally up to you,
and not indicated in the pattern.

Ch 36 (46)
If you would like your wig to be longer add more chs,
and if you want it shorter, add less chains.

Row 1 - 1 sl st in 2nd ch from the hook and in the next 4 chs,
1 sc in the next 30 (40)  chs,  ch 1, turn.  ( 5 sl st, 30, 40 sc,)

Row 2 - Working in the Blo, 1 sc in next 30 (40) sc,
1 sl st in the  5 sl st, ch 1, turn. (30, 40 sc, 5 sl st,)

The 5 sl st is the top of the hat, where we will gather closed when finished.


Row 3 - 5 sl st, Working in the BLO, 1 sc in the next 30 (40) sc,  , ch 1, turn.
 ( 30, 40 sc, 5 sl st)

If you want your bangs to be wider add more rows

Row 46( 52)  - 5 sl st, 1 sc in the next 15 (20)  sts,  ch 45(50), ch1, turn

Check to make sure the amount of chs line up to the other side of the wig,
 or you will have an uneven wig, unless you want an un even wig,
which might look pretty cool.

1 sl st in the  5 sl st, ch 1, turn. (30, 40 sc, 5 sl st,)

Row 50(56)-74(84)  - Repeat Rows 48(54) and 49(55) alternating rows.

Check to make sure you are staying even with your sts and rows.

Line up the back of the wig, wrong side out, and sl st the back of the hat closed.
tie off and weave in your end.

With a 24 inch piece of matching yarn, thread onto the yarn needle,  
Still working with the wrong side of the hat, 
sew and gather closed the top of the hat. 
Tie securely, so hat stays closed. Cut yarn and flip right side out.

Big Bows:

Bow band - Ch 9(11) 1 sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, and in each ch, ch1, turn
 ( 8(10 sc)

1 sc in each sc, tie off leaving about a 8 inch yarn tail.

 Funny Pooch Photo Bomb!
I had to post this next pic
 because it is so funny. 
We were trying to take some 
fun pictures and my pooches 
wanted to be be involved in the fun. 

It would appear the Maximo is
 "getting friendly" with me,
 and Rosie is giving him "The look"! 

We laughed so hard when
 we saw this picture.

I love having my creative daughter,
Elisabeth Spivey of 
Calleigh's Clips and Crochet Creations,
 here, visiting. 

We have so much fun together!!!

Crochet Graph Patterns Collection

These are graph patterns that I designed.
I wanted to learn how to stitch a crochet graph pattern.
And these are what I came up with.

I really enjoyed designing these
 graph crochet patterns
 and hope you do do.
And I discovered it is really
 quite simple and fun.

The Love Stamp was actually one of the first graph
 patterns I designed, so it is a little rough.
Then I did the Oklahoma and Colorado graphs.
And Of course the Dog Sweaters last.






I have used the graphs to make pillows,
 blankets, jackets and  and all sorts of fun things.
