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 )

Hi, I'm new to the board. Did the tutorial for this ever appear? I've seen the knitted instructions on knitty.com but would really like the pattern for crochet.

Thanks

Here it is - the pattern that I made up as I went along:
Hair Club for Babies (Crochet version of Hallowig)
I used:

Size G (4 mm) crochet hook
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 1 – Chain 31, turn, SC in each CH across, CH 1, turn (30 SC)

Row 2-17 – SC in each sc across, CH 1, turn (30 SC)

Row 18 – SC in first 20 stitches, leave last 10 unworked, CH 1, turn (20 SC)

Row 19 – SC in each sc across, chain 3, turn (20 sc)

Row 20 – Skip first ch, SC in next 2 ch and in each SC across, chain 1 turn (22 SC)

Row 21 – SC in each sc across, chain 3, turn (22 sc)

Row 22 – Skip first ch, SC in next 2 ch and in each SC across, chain 1 turn (24 SC)

Row 23 – SC in each sc across, chain 3, turn (24 sc)

Row 24 -  Skip first ch, SC in next 2 ch and in each SC across, chain 1 turn (26 SC)

Row 25 - SC in each sc across, chain 3, turn (26 sc)

Row 26 - Skip first ch, SC in next 2 ch and in each SC across, chain 1 turn (28 SC)

Row 27 - SC in each sc across, chain 1, turn (28 sc)

Row 28 – SC in first 26 sc, skip last 2 stitches, chain 1, turn (26)

Row 29 - SC in each sc across, chain 1, turn (26 sc)

Row 30 – SC in first 24 sc, skip last 2 stitches, chain 1, turn ( 24 SC)

Row 31 - SC in each sc across, chain 1, turn (24 sc)

Row 32 – SC in first 22 sc, skip last 2 stitches, chain 1, turn (22 SC)

Row 33 - SC in each sc across, chain 1, turn (22 sc)

Row 34 – SC in first 20 sc, skip last 2 stitches, chain 1, turn (20 SC)

Row 35 - SC in each sc across, chain 1, turn (20 sc)

Row 36 – SC in each sc across, chain 11, turn (20 sc, 10 ch st, 1 turning ch st)

Row 37 – Skip first ch, sc in next 10 ch, sc in next 20 sc, ch 1, turn (30 sc)
Rows 38 – 52 -  SC in each sc across, chain 1, turn (30 SC)

Row 53 – SC in first 15 SC, skip last 15 stitches, ch 1, turn (15 sc)

Row 54 – SC n first 5 SC, skip last 10 stitches, ch 1 turn ( 5 sc)

Row 54 – SC in each st, ch 3, turn ( 5 sc)

Row 55 – skip first ch, SC in next 2 ch and in each SC across (7 sc)

Row 56 – SC in ea st, ch 3, turn (7 sc)

Row 57 - skip first ch, SC in next 2 ch and in each SC across (9 sc)

Row 58 – SC in ea st, ch 3, turn (9 sc)

Row 59 - skip first ch, SC in next 2 ch and in each SC across (11 sc)

Row 60 – SC in ea st, ch 3, turn (11 sc)

Row 61 – skip first ch, SC in next 2 ch and in each SC across (13 sc)

Row 62-63 – SC in ea st, ch 1, turn (13 sc)

Row 64 – SC in first 11 st, skip last 2 st, ch 1, turn (11 sc)

Row 65 – SC in ea st, ch 1, turn (11 sc)

Row 66 – SC in first 9 st, skip last 2 st, ch 1 turn (9 sc)

Row 67 – SC in ea st, ch 1 turn (9 sc)

Row 68 – SC in first 7 st, skip last 2 st, ch 1 turn (7 sc)

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.

Hi, Silkymist,
For an adult size, I was thinking increasing the "side" rows by increasing the number of rows (to make it bigger around), AND increasing the number of stitches from 30 to say, maybe 40 which would make it longer.  But perhaps using a larger hook would be enough of a change to make it adult sized. 
Good luck!  Please post pics when you're done (and progress shots, too, if you can)

Thanks so much! I'm going to try and reduce the pattern as I actually wanted it for my amigurumi doll!

If I manage it anytime soon I'll post. x

soniacw, what a great idea.  crocheting in the back loops only will give you the ribbed/hair look.  The hard part will be adjusting the number of rows to make it fit your amigurumi.  Looking forward to seeing your creation!

Photos, finally!
Uh, you know how 1 year olds never sit still.  Or keep hats on their heads?  Yah, feel my pain....or baby's....

Hooray!  I have hair!!


Wait!  I can't let people see me like this!!

There was quite a wrestling match, but these are the two best shots of her in her wig.  She really doesn't like wearing it.  Oh, well, it was fun while it lasted.

librarylolita, I hope you have good luck with this pattern. PM me if you have any questions.  And post your pics when you get yours done.  Turns out that my granddaughter likes to play with the wig much more than she likes to wear it!

I'm in the middle of making this, but where you omit the last 10 stitches on row 18, should you sc the 20 on row 19, ending with a one chain, then add 3 chain at the end of row 20? Because despite trying twice and starting again, my shaping id happening at the neck edge of the wig, not the top end where it shows on your picture.

Just wanting to make sure Smiley
