Rainbow Brite Wig

NoteI 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

J & H Size Crochet Hook-  I love these Clover crochet hooks!  
Tapestry Needles 
Stitch Markers 
Small Scissors
Worsted Weight Yarn- Yellow, Blue Red 

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 (hat).
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.

Ponytail

yellow yarn

  1. Cut yellow yarn strands 36 inches long. Fold in half and tie another piece of yellow yarn around the fold (I tie it several times to make it more secure).
  2. You will use the piece of yarn that you tied around the fold to attach the pony tail to the top of wig just slightly to one side (tip- I pass one yarn end free rainbow brite wig crochet patternthrough the magic ring and the other piece one or two rows down on one side). Tie together on the inside and weave in your ends.
  3. Use the picture as a guide to determine where the second piece of yarn will be tied. Tie it several times around the pony tail and use the ends to attach to the side of the wig.
  4. Again, using the picture as a guide, attach another piece of yarn and tie around the pony tail several times. This time, you are not attaching it to the wig. You can pass the yarn ends into the interior of the ponytail.

Bangs

yellow yarn

  1. Use stitch markers to determine where you want your bangs to start/end. Make sure you have your wig centered with the ponytail on one side. I attached my bangs around the front half of the hat.
  2. Cut strips of yarn. You don't need them to be very long but keep in mind that you're going to want them long enough to work with. You can trim them afterwards.
  3. Use a crochet hook to attach yarn to wig by looping the yarn around the stitches on the hat and tying. I've included photos to demonstrate this for you. 
  4. Trim to desired length.

Bow

-star (H 5/mm hook & red yarn)

Round 1: ch 2, 5 sc in 2nd ch from hook, join to top of first sc [5]

Round 2: *ch 3, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next ch, sl st in next sc on round*, repeat everything between asterisks 4 more times [5 star points]

-ribbons (H 5/mm hook & blue yarn)

Ch 20, dc in 3rd ch from hook, dc in each remaining ch (make 2 ribbons)

Assemble the star and ribbons and attach to front of ponytail.
