Found another steuchlein from a German Site

From Landsknecht Portal:

Wulsthaube
Das Material für diese Haube sollte aus einem feinen, nicht ganz weißem Leinen bestehen. Für den vorderen Abschluß der Haube verwendet man die Webkante oder einen Zierstich. Die einzelnen, dachziegelartig gefalteten Lagen des Haubenabschlusses, werden in ca. 7 - 8 cm Entfernung vom Rand mittels Nadel und Faden aufeinander fixiert, wobei jeweils 5 mm jeder Lage zu sehen sein soll. Zum Schluß werden noch die Bänder zum binden angenäht. Zum Tragen wurde die Haube einmal im Nacken gebunden und die herabhängenden Enden mit 2 Stecknadeln fixiert.

Translated:
The material for this cap should consist of a fine, not quite white linen. For the front end of the hood used the Webkante or a blanket stitch. The individual, brick-layers of the folded hood accounts, are about 7 to 8 cm distance from the edge using needle and thread to each fixed, each 5 mm each able to see it. Finally, the tapes are still sewed on the binding. To wear the hood once in the neck and tied the loose ends with 2 pins fixed.

I know these idea of how a Wulsthaube be made. But i´m not very fond of these version. The outcome has far to less bulge.

All my Studies bring me to the conclusion that a long stripe of fabric is wrapped several times around the head. Beneath must be some bulging (Wulst), maybe (fake) braids or a stuffed tube.
Sometimes on biblical Scenes you can see Mary or an Angel with very long open hair and a long flowing stripe of fabric around her shoulders. In other pictures you can see headcoverings build very sloppy headcoverings with loosly wraped Stripes.

Later Styles (after 1500) are more artificial. The shape of this wrapped style is reproduced with caps and only one cloth above. (the version laying in the back in susannas bath). Sometimes with false stripes attached to hang over neck and shoulders
These are more like hats :)
