The Mod Bob, a wig for all occasions

It's Epiphany! And if you're in the vicinity of Louisiana, you know what that means: the official start of carnival season, king cakes abounding, parades marching through neighborhoods, and costumes.

In celebration of all things Mardi Gras, my pattern for The Mod Bob crochet wig is now up for sale!

Short Version

The pattern includes instructions for a short version that slopes up sharply in the back, and a longer version that would do a better job at covering up longer hair. Adjustments for children and toddlers are included.

Long version with Devil horns
I've worn this wig for many an occasion in New Orleans, from Halloween and Mardi Gras, to just a cold(ish) evening out on the town.

short version in progress
The wig is crocheted in two pieces and sewn together, so the bangs are more defined. It's a fairly simple pattern, the most complicated stitches are front post double crochets and a couple invisible decreases, though that stitch is explained in the pattern.

Double devils!
As a bonus, I've included instructions for the optional additions of devil horns or alien antennae to make your wig into a true costume piece. Or a very, very fashionable hat.

I hope you like it as much as I do. The pattern is sold as an instant download from my Etsy shop: The Mod Bob Pattern  Happy crocheting!
