Crochet Tutorial: Pop Art Wig

Influenced by the Pop Art Movement of New York artists, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and James Rosenquist, I decided to add this hot pink wig creation to my crochet costume collection. This is my very own version of being a comic strip character with a bit of YARN power!

This bold color works perfectly in the creation of this costume, however, don’t just stop there! This wig can make a great hat! Walk on the wild side with this bold pink fashion statement anytime of the year!

There was a point in time when I was going through treatment and I lost my hair, this would have been a great piece to wear to cover my head. I could totally rock these crocheted bold colored wigs! They make great chemo hats! Add a bow for a little flare!

go BOLD, go CRAZY, go WILD! Whatever you do, have fun!
