Grab your 3 mm \ C hook and let’s make some hair!
I made 3 lengths of hair and filled them in where needed. I used 23 total pieces. I don’t recommend using more than that because the head will get to heavy.
I had 3 starting chain lengths.
Longest – ch 40 – I made 7 of these.
Medium – ch 30 – I made 12 of these.
Short – ch 20 – I made 3 of these
The pattern is do a ch of (?) Then working along your chain…
– DC 2 (inc) in 3rd ch from the hook. DC 2 (inc) in the next 7 chains. (This will create the curl at the end.) *DC 1 in the next 5 chs, DC 2 (inc) in the next 5 chs* repeat what’s in between the *’s until you reach the end of your chain.
I did do one chain of 10 and I DC 2 (inc) down my chain to make a small curl to be sewn right in front.
It’s important to leave a tail before creating your slip knot so that you can hide the tail easier. Or use it to crimp the piece of hair.
I started at the top of the head and worked around in a half circle. Skipping a stitch in between.
When you’ve made a strand of hair and are ready to attach it, insert your hook and YO, pull your loop through the stitch and ch 1. Pull your tail through the loop to secure.
You can tie the tails together or use them to better position your piece of hair on the head.
You can use your extra long tails to weave and crimp the hair a bit as well by running it through your piece of hair.

The Doll’s Face
When my daughter designed this doll I thought for sure that she would want these big anime like eyes.
So when she handed me this drawing of the face she wanted I was surprised.
But I grabbed my black felt and started cutting! Took be a few, but I finally got something I thought fit the space that I liked.
The eyes and mouth came out about 4 cms \ 1 ½ inches wide.
The whole face is about 9 cms \ 3 ½ inches wide in total.
Feel free to use this photo to help you create this face.
Grab your hot glue gun and a toothpick. Dab a bit of hot glue onto the end of your toothpick and quickly side it under your black felt.
Trying to do this quickly and efficiently before the glue dries and avoiding any string getting caught on the dolls face can be tough. Go to a well lit place and do a few practice runs using a piece using a piece of paper if you feel you need to. You don’t want a bunch of dried glue where you didn’t want it!
