the curls

OK, I've made the hat and made the curls and it was easy to follow. How do I get those curls to lie flat???? A little more instruction in that area would be really helpful.


make it part of your design!

If your curls are more full, own it! Or use a needle and sewing thread in a matching color to tack them down.

Fun project

Had a lot of fun making the Mod wig! The pattern moves quickly and easy to follow. Great for a bad hair!


I was trying to make this hat, but the numbers kept tripping me up.... it says for round 1, "Work 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook, join with sl st in first sc-8 sc." Is that right? I can't understand it.


You identified a typo. It should read "work 8 sc in 2nd ch from hook."

That should fix it!
