My friend asked could I make a crocheted wig with loopy edges and pigtails on the sides. How adorable!
Of course, I can do that!
I love a good challenge with my hook and after a few Facebook chats about color and size, I was off to the races with this fun new project.
I’m still a novice at writing patterns, but I’m ready to learn. I wrote out my work on a dozen or more little post-it stickers and then put the instructions and a few photos into a .pdf file to share with you. For an experienced crocheter, these hats can be completed in a couple of hours.
Approximately 5 oz. worsted weight yarn – Suggested Red Heart Super Saver in Coffee
Size H crochet hook or appropriate size to achieve finished measurements
2 pieces of ribbon, 16” each (optional), in colors of your choice. I used some Offray 3/8” ribbon from my craft room stash.
Stitch markers, safety pins or contrast yarn to mark pattern changes
Measuring tape and scissors
