Crochet Wig Cap
I saw a crocheted wig cap on Ravelry, a Knitting and Crochet community. I know how to knit, but I do not know how to crochet, yet.
It is started by crocheting a Magic Adjustable Circle/Loop. Then it is crocheted with double crochet and increase stitches.
The same technique is used to make crocheted skull caps for humans.
From what I've learned, so far, crochet is less flexible than knitting.
That is good, because I would want a less flexible wig cap for my BJD.
I have put the tulle wig cap on the back burner, for now, because I think I will like this crocheted wig cap better. The tulle just seems too fragile. I don't know. I'm figuring it out as I go along.
Anyway, I have been watching some YouTube videos on how to crochet the Magic Loop, and make the double crochet stitch. Fortunately, I have some crochet hooks in my knitting bag, and some yarn to practice with, in my yarn stash. I am going to learn how to crochet by making a crochet wig cap. I am still very awkward manipulating the yarn and the crochet hook, but that is a part of the learning curve.
When I get the wig cap finished (I will have to make it fit a 60cm BJD), the hair will be put on the wig cap by knotting it, the same way as human hair wigs are made. See my previous wig posts by clicking on the wig label at the bottom of this post.
