11  Re: Hair Club for Babies (crocheted version of hallowig) in Crochet: Completed Projects by Castaways on: January 29, 2008 12:45:42 PM
Here it is - the pattern that I made up as I went along:
Hair Club for Babies (Crochet version of Hallowig)
I used:

Red Heart Supersaver yarn

This size is intended for a baby, we'll see how it fits my 11 month old granddaughter.
The entire pattern is worked by crocheting in the BACK LOOP ONLY (imitates the knitted rib stitch)

Row 69 – SC in ea st, ch 1 turn (7 sc)

Row 70 – SC in first 5 st, skip last 2 st, ch 1, turn ( 5 sc)

Row 71 – SC in ea st (5 sc), finish off, leave LONG tail for sewing the “wig” together
It should look like this:


Meet end of “bangs” (last crocheted row, marked “1” in photo) to other side (first crocheted row, marked “2” ), starting at very middle of first row, sew together, then sew up and over the bangs see arrows, tie off.  Then sew across the top of the head see long arrow in photo, fasten off.  Then sew the final seam, meeting longest row with middle of the top of head seam (see arrow), tie off.  Pull in all loose ends.  Now, find your wig form, maniquin, or another rounded item (ball?) and place hat over it, pulling into shape. 


I found that lightly misting it with water, patting and pulling into shape, and allowing to dry helped with the shaping.  I even used my iron to give a short burst of steam in a couple of places helped it form into shape – don't forget to leave it on your wig form (or whatever) until it's completely dry to make sure the shape is kept. 

Best of luck with this pattern.  Please let me know if I've left something out, mixed up the row count numbers, or whatever else I might have overlooked.

12  Hair Club for Babies (crocheted version of hallowig) in Crochet: Completed Projects by Castaways on: January 28, 2008 06:34:03 PM
I made a crocheted hallowig in bright purple a few years ago for my daughter while she was in college.  She really liked it, but I never got a photo of it.  Sad
Recently I saw a baby-sized knitted Hallowig, and was re-inspired (is that a word?).  I have the CUTEST granddaughter, but at 11 months old, she's still nearly hairless!  So, of course, she needs a crocheted wig.
So here's what I've made for her, now just need to try it on her (she lives about an hour away...  Sad )

13  Cutie Crocheted Dress Purse (image intense) in Crochet: Completed Projects by Castaways on: January 24, 2008 04:34:16 PM
Here's a pic of a purse that I've made recently.  I've made several of these, gave some away, even sold a few. Tell me what you think:




The one that looks black is actually a fuzzy soft yarn (how do you spell chenille???) in a very dark red.

"modified" to add actual  pics instead of links

This is the first time I've started a thread, and first time I've uploaded a photo, so be gentle with me and here's hopin' it works!  (Oops, even tho I joined awhile back and have even become a "friend of Craftster" I haven't posted enough times to put a pic on, so you'll have to click on the link for my project:






I've been making purse from record albums, here's one of them (my favorite, at least my favorite for today)
