Fun wig for Halloween or bad hair day, or just to have FUN!!!

This was a pattern that I made up because I am not advanced enough to do the pattern that I found on line-it gave me more ideas once I was done, though! I knit fun fur wigs for my Mom's dolls, so I love to work with fun fur. Fun fur is SO forgiving, and stretchy, it is easy for me to work with. After I put it on, I was able to pull the bottom of the front points together like a helmet-that gave me even MORE ideas! Have fun with this, I would love to see more versions!

Instructions

  1. 1

    I am sorry, I took no pictures while I was making this, because I wasn't sure how it would turn out.
    I was using my size 13 16" knitting needles for something else, so I went to my size 11's. I had a big skein of orange fun fur-the regular size that you get will probably not be enough for this, you might need two or even three depending on the length you want for your "hair".

  2. How to make a wig. Fun Fun Fur Wig - Step 2 2

    I cast on 45 stitches, DO NOT JOIN, this first part if worked as a panel. I just knit until it was about five or six inches-or stop when you have the length you want.

    then place a marker, add 15 more stitches (do this however you want, I don't know technical terms for how I did it), join in the round, being careful not to twist the fifteen stitches.

    Knit until the added on part, which will be your "bangs" is about 4 1/2 inches.

    Knit 8, knit 2 together all the way around

    knit next round

    knit 7, knit 2 together all the way around

    knit next row

    knit 6, knit 2 together, etc.

    knit next row

    knit 5, knit 2 together, etc

    knit next round

    knit 4, knit 2 together, etc

    at this point, take a needle, thread the rest of the stitches onto it, cinch it tight, and weave in the ends-TADAAAAA!! Fun, huh? I hope this made sense.
