Why a Crochet Cabbage Patch Wig?

The 1980’s were a fun and exciting time in the world of toys.

The 80’s saw the beginning of several long-lasting toy lines, such as G.I. Joe and My Little Pony.

It also oversaw the boom in video games as a new form of home entertainment for kids. Mind-boggling new inventions such as the Nintendo Entertainment System (or NES as we usually referred to it) and Sega Master System (later the Genisis as well) would forever shape how children approached playtime.

Still though, even with all the new enticements that those things would bring, sometimes the simplicity of a doll rang truest for much of our childhood.

The Cabbage Patch dolls are a perfect example of this. While most toys were fairly identical, meaning everyone who had one had the same toy, Cabbage Patch Dolls were unique. Each came with a name and an already-made birth certificate.

It was all too easy to believe that your Cabbage Patch doll was the only one like it in the world. This made your doll stand out much more than a toy that anyone could buy and you treasured him/her all the more for it.

Bring Your Childhood Back with this Crochet Cabbage Patch Wig

For myself, I always wanted a Cabbage Patch doll, but my parents couldn’t afford a “real” one for a long time.

I did finally receive my one and only Cabbage Patch doll one Christmas and I cherished her. Dolls are often a special part of a child’s memories.

Now with my own little girls that like to play dress up, I decided to bring some of my childhood back to enjoy with them.

I found this wonderful pattern for a crochet Cabbage Patch wig and knew I had to give it a try.

What I Did with the Crochet Cabbage Patch Wig Pattern

I worked up four different crochet Cabbage Patch wigs and they didn’t take long at all! I have two little girls, ages 2 and 4. Both of them love to play dress up so I wanted to have some options for them!

I made a brown, yellow, red and pink/purple version. Because they worked up so quickly, I am probably going to make some for my nieces as well!

This crochet Cabbage Patch wig is absolutely delightful for newborn photo shoots and would make a great gift for a mother-to-be.
