Crochet Head Form



<crochet-head-form-preemie>

I've been looking where to find a DIY head form, but I have no luck finding a good looking one. I am having a hard time taking pictures of my crochet hat because my kids doesn't want to model anymore they are busy playing with their video games. I love making crochet hats but I don't have a head form to display and fit my hats. So I decided that I will make a crochet head form. 

For now I already made a preemie size pattern. next will be the infant, toddler, small child, teen and male and female adult. My crochet head form will be available soon on my Ravelry shop. I think this head form will be useful for crocheter or knitters who likes to take pictures of their hat items.
