CROCHET PATTERN in Written Form: PDF File Format

This is my NEWEST Pattern; if you see any errors or potential errors, send me a convo so I can look into fixing it. :) I'm human, at times some grammatical errors/typos can occur.

Why buy a cheapo styrofoam kind when you can create a HANDMADE one that will last decades upon decades.

Finished size is approximately 20 inch circumference.
This is a display size; can display adult hats, scarves, or larger child hats/scarfs.

Variations in size can occur depending on your gauge and stuffing process.

Materials needed:

Size F or G Aluminum crochet hook & about 410 yards of #21 Twisted Nylon Seine Twine (or substitute #24 Nylon Crochet Cord: This will give you a larger result. Or Substitute #18 Nylon Crochet Cord/Thread: this will give you a smaller result.
You can use medium weight sturdy acrylic yarn (the cheap scratchy kind, like Super Saver) but expect a larger result; about 22 inch head.

The #21 'Twisted' Nylon Seine Twine is recommended for best and sturdy results, however find a comparable acrylic sturdy yarn if you choose.

TIP: You can use #24 TWISTED Nylon Seine Twine or #24 Nylon twisted Mason line found at many hardware stores, ebay, amazon, or other twine/cord shops online (such as net shops) Just make sure it's not tarred.
#21 TWISTED Nylon Seine Twine can be found online: For example, Ebay has it, just type in '#21 Twisted Nylon Seine Twine'.


About 45 ounces heavyweight fiberfill to stuff the head (I use one that is made to stuff firmly for dolls/bears- a crafting fiberfill, because this has more weight to it than the lighter weight, fluffier version- Morning Glory Premium Polyester Fiberfill works well), Large yarn needle, a medium wooden dowel to assist with stuffing process. IT IS IMPORTANT TO REALLY STUFF THE MANNEQUIN WITH LOTS OF THE Course FIBERFILL TO REACH THE APPROXIMATE FINISHED SIZE.

Here are a few links to the Morning Glory Premium Fiberfil that I recommend for best results (not affiliated, just a helpful resource):

Pattern is worked in the round. The mannequin head is created in two parts: the head and a bottom section which is sewn on with yarn after stuffed.

YOU MUST USE FIRM COARSE DRY FIBERFILL TO STUFF WITH TO ACHIEVE BEST RESULTS. LIGHT FLUFFY TYPE WILL NOT ACHIEVE A MANNEQUIN HEAD THAT WILL BE STURDY AND STABLE ENOUGH. I USE FAIRFIELD CRAFTERS CHOICE THAT SAYS IT IS A COURSE DRY FIBERFILL. Or Morning Glory Premium Fiberfill works well too.


Thank you for being a wonderful person! :)

There are NO RETURNS on the pattern. YOU NEED ADOBE READER to read the file: I send in PDF format.

This is my original pattern.

FAQs

Although I'm not taking custom orders right now, I do list my original designs and creations periodically. Please frequently check my shop for new listings. I list my whimsical fairy mannequins less frequently since they take many hours to create.

Of course! But if you wouldn't mind giving me design credit in your listing, that would be a lovely acknowledgment.

I sure hope so! However, each persons skill level, creation process, quality and type of materials used, and other factors will likely yield variances in results. In my patterns I specify the suggested materials to be used in order to achieve the expected results. However, as I mentioned, each person brings their own unique qualities to a completed project. In addition, the stuffing process takes time and finesse and you should view the stuffing process as a molding, forming process that will make or break your final creation result. Please send me a convo if you have a question or need clarity on part of crochet pattern instruction. Although I have a 'real' job aside from Etsy, I will try to get back to you as soon as I can.

If you are struggling with a pattern and not having successful results in creating your mannequin head or dress form, then don't hesitate to contact me. It's discouraging to have people leave feedback without discussing any possible solutions first. Like most artisans, I take my designs and patterns seriously and to heart. I want you to be successful to the best of your ability to create an item using my patterns. I've purchased patterns before from other designers and always contact them to have my questions or concerns answered. Feedback is appreciated and is always useful. In today's world of 'feedback' driven commerce, positive feedback is always a goal for me and many artisans who choose to sell on Etsy. Thank you
