Elsa Wig

MAY 31, 2018

Note: I recently decided to revisit my basic beanie/hat pattern.  After designing my Candy Corn and Scarecrow hats using an I 5.5mm crochet hook, I found that I really liked the size and closeness of the stitches. I will be transitioning all of my hat and wig patterns over to my new Basic Beanie pattern beginning on Monday, October 22nd. 

Materials

I 5.5 mm & J 6mm Size Crochet Hooks-  I love these Clover crochet hooks!  
Tapestry Needles 
Stitch Markers 
Small Scissors
Worsted Weight Yarn: light tealwhite & gray

If you want to block your work, you can use a crochet blocking board, such as this one:

Notes

Finished Sizes: 0/3m, 3/6m, 6/12m, toddler, child, adult

You are crocheting in the round from the top down.

The ch 2 at the beginning of each round does not count as a dc.

You can make any size hat longer or shorter by repeating or eliminating the second to last row.

Gauge

Crochet gauge: 15 dc= 4”, 7 rows= 3"

If you find that your hat is too large, use an I 5.5 mm crochet hook.

If you would like me to walk you through the first four rounds of my hat or if you need help with making a magic ring or any of the stitches, visit my channel.

Crown

For size 0/3 months, I worked the first row of the crown between the stitches in the second to last row of double crochet. If you are making a larger hat, I would recommend starting the crown a few rows up.

The crown will be in the front half of your wig. Your stitches should end up being divisible by three.

Instructions between two asterisks should be repeated for the remainder of the row.

Row 1: (light teal yarn) ch 1, sc across the front half of your wig (make sure your total number of stitches ends up being divisible by 3-- for my 0/3 months size I made 27), turn

Row 2: ch 2, dc in each st, turn

Row 3: ch 1, *sc in next st, chain 5 and (sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc, dc, tc), skip a stitch and slip stitch in next st*, repeat (to break this down- each crown point uses three stitches: in the 1st st you sc, ch 5 &  work the instructions between the (), you are skipping over the 2nd st and you slip stitch in the 3rd st --repeat this until you get to the end of the row, finish off leaving a long tail to fasten the crown points to the wig

Use your gray yarn and tapestry needle to outline the crown.

Braid

You are going to attach the yarn for the braid through the stitches on one side of the wig (the right side when looking at the hat from the front).

Cut 60 long strips of yarn (for my 0/3 months size wig, I cut my strands 40" long). You will attach 6 strands of yarn to the 10 stitches on the side of your wig (6 x 10= 60).

Pull the yarn half way through- half of each strand of yarn will be on the inside of the wig and half on the outside.

Once you have attached all of the strands, divide into three sections and braid. Use a piece of your light teal yarn to fasten the braid with a bow. Trim the ends to an equal length.

  

All done!

  1. I would like it thank you for sharing your pattern, my granddaughters will be so happy to receive their Elsa and Ana wigs. I have searched so many patterns, and yours is by far the best one. Thank you again

  2. My hat is working up way too big. I’m using a 5.5 mm hook, size toddler, and just starting round 13. My gauge is 7 rows equals 4 inches= 7 rows and 15 hdc = 6 inches. This fits my adult head now,with no more rounds?
