Knit Teeswater wig
The Ringalina Doll – knit Teeswater Lock wig
This wig will be for the head of 13” in circumference
You will need mohair yarn and circular knitting needles.
Cast on 40 stitches - Pattern knit a row, purl a row
Adding individual locks into the knitting by laying the lock onto the yarn and knitting 2 stitches before adding the next lock. Let lock hang after 2 knit stitches. In the purl row, the locks get locked into the knit.
Repeat these 2 rows until the piece measures 2.5 inches
Next, knit 25 stitches, continue to add locks, knitting stitch 26 and 27 together, turn and purl 11 stitches. Purl stitch 12 and 13 together, turn.
Knit 11, (don’t forget to add locks) knit 2 together, turn
Purl 11, purl 2 together
Repeat this until you have the 12 remaining (middle) stitches on your needles. Cast off, knitting locks into the cast-off. This will make a nice, full edge with locks.
I consider the side we started off on (40 stitches) the front, but sometimes it looks nice to turn the wig around. Try out how you like it better!
Pin the wig to the head and start sewing around the edge with a small invisible stitch. With a back-stitch go in circles around the inner areas of the wig, so it is attached not just on the edge but all over the head..
