The Knit Wig


You know what feels great?  Checking off an item you have on your Pinterest board as done. I've been wanting to make this wig ever since I saw it on Knitty.  Well, I finally found the time plus reason (Halloween) to knit it.  And now that I've checked it off the to-do list, I'll be moving on to this butterfly costume.  Wish me luck.

For those wondering, the wig is pretty easy to knit.  I would say it's just a little more complicated than a hat.

Are any of you making costumes?   Please share.  You might inspire someone!

How fun! My littlest would get a kick out of that. :)

Deanna,

I see you access to the internet again :)

Both my children had to try it on when I was done. It actually fit my youngest pretty well. She might wear it for crazy hair day.

If you decide to make one, it's easy to adjust the pattern to make the hair length and bangs shorter.

I love the wig, I wish I could knit.
I made my little girl a Lalaloopsy wig - so fun and crazy looking.

I just finished the rest of her costume and my other Daughter's, who's going to be a vampire.
