I found myself wondering just what I could do with all that cheap, bright acrylic yarn one finds in craft shops. I also found myself thinking about Halloween. Add in a bad hair day and this is what I got.
This wig is worked from the bottom up, the bound off edge is the center part.

|One size fits all/Adult|
|8 inches wide at widest point when flat (unstretched) |
11 inches long when flat
[ MC] Red Heart Kids [100% acrylic; 5oz.]; color: Pink, shade 2734
1 pair US #8/5mm needles
[Knitty's list of standard abbreviations can be found here]
2 X 2 rib
28 sts/22 rows = 4 inches in 2x2 rib (unstretched)
Using straight needles or one set of circulars, cast on 96 sts.
Work in 2 x 2 rib until the piece is as long as the distance between the bottom of your chin, and your eyebrow (about 6.5"), ending with a WS row.
NOTE: The extra stitches along the edge of the work will balance the width of the first and last ribs. Later on, when the bangs are added, these stitches will become parts of purl ribs.
If more length in the main body of the wig is desired, work more rows at this point.
If more length in the bangs is desired, work more rows at this point.
NOTE: Decreases will be worked identically at the front and back of the wig. Markers have been placed one stitch away from decreases instead of directly next to decreases, for ease of working.
Begin decrease round by working decreases over bangs.
Weave in ends and turn right side out
