Free Crochet Wig Patterns

Rainbow Wig

This crochet wig pattern uses multicolored yarn to create a rainbow effect. Great for using up different scraps of yarn.

Marge Simpson Wig

Dress up as Marge Simpson, tower of blue hair and all. From So Much Crap to Make, So Little Time, this post shows you how she designed her costume using things found at Walmart. You will need balloons, bubble wrap, or some other material to stuff the wig with so that it stands up nice and tall.

Living Statue Grey Wig

This grey wig was created as part of a living statue costume, and consists of a crochet scullcap base, which you then attach many lengths of yarn to create a thick wig. From there you can braid it, or pull it back in other ways to create whichever effect you desire.

Bald Baby Wig

There's nothing cuter than a baby in a wig, particularly a yarn wig. Dress your child up for Halloween, or use as a prop for taking cute pictures. Great for bald babies.

Monster Wig

With kinky, jumbled two-toned hair, you're sure to look great in this crochet monster wig. This pattern is from Lion Brand, and requires a membership, but it's free and they have lots of other great crochet and knitting patterns.

Lassie Wig

More like a hat with pigtails and bangs, this wig will give you a cartoonish look. Great for Sims costumers, or for dressing up as other animated characters.

Honestly, I never got the whole crochet wig/beard thing, but for Halloween it makes perfect sense. Can't decide if I like the Marge Simpson or bald baby wig the best. Nice patterns; thanks for sharing!

No problem. :) The baby one has got to be my favorite, she's just too darn cute. But, the Marge Simpson one really surprised me, it showed how varied crochet wig patterns can be. Thanks for reading. :)
