My Daughter is visiting and we decided to have
 a little fun with this silly crochet Wig.

 so it is very easy to adjust to any size.

You can make the wig with out it.
 It is just not as cute.

Video Tutorial By Bobwilson 123

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)

Row 4- 24 (28)  - Repeat Row 2 - 3,  alternating the rows,
( 30, 40 sc, 5 sl st)

Bangs:
Row 25(29) - 5 sl st, 1 sc in the next 15 (20)  sts,  ch 1, turn.
 ( 5 sl st, 15, 20 sc,)

Row  26(30)  - Working in the Blo, 1 sc in next 15 (20) sc,
1 sl st in the 5 sl st, ch 1, turn. (15, 20 sc, 5 sl st)

Row 27(31) - 46(52) - Repeat Row 25 and 26 alternating rows.

If you want your bangs to be wider add more rows

Row 47( 53)  - 5 sl st, 1 sc in the next 15 (20)  sts,  ch 16(21), 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.

Row 48(54) - Working in the Blo, 1 sc in chs and  sc,
1 sl st in the  5 sl st, ch 1, turn. (30, 40 sc, 5 sl st,)

Row 49(55)  - 5 sl st, Working in the BLO, 1 sc in the next 30 (40) sc,  , ch 1, turn.
 ( 30, 40 sc, 5 sl st)

Row 50(56)  - 1 sc in the next 30 (40)  chs,  5 sl st, ch 1, turn.  ( 5 sl st, 30, 40 sc)

Row 51(57)-76(85)  - Repeat Rows 50(55) and 51(56) alternating rows.

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

If you need more rows for width, you can add them here. 

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:
ch1 at end of rows does not count as a st.

R: 1 - ch 17(23), 1 hdc in 2nd ch from the hook, and in each ch across, ch 1 turn.
(17, 22 hdc)

R : 2 - 1 hdc in each hdc, ch 1 turn

R : 3- 4(6) - Repeat R 2,  2 times for child's bow and 4 times for adult bow.

Sc crochet around all 4 sides of bows evenly, join to first sc and tie off, weaving in ends.

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.

Pinch up the center of  bow and place the bow band in place, sew closed the band with the yarn tail.

Place bow on top of hat and sew in place with matching thread.

 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!!!
