Wild, Wild Red Wig

Lion Brand® Homespun® - Microspun

GAUGE:

15 single crochet = 4 in. [10 cm]

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Cut Coral Gables Homespun and Candy Apple Homespun into 1 yd. [1 m] lengths. Hold one strand of each yarn together and fold in half. Starting along lower edge, use crochet hook to draw fold through space in Wig Base, forming a loop. Pull ends of yarn through this loop and pull to tighten. Repeat with remaining yarn to cover Wig Base. Wig can be trimmed as desired.

I have made this twice for friends undergoing chemo. They both said the laughs were the best medicine. - One friend's teenage daughter wants one for her Halloween costume.
