Row 2 – 5: CH1, work 1 SC into each ST, TURN  (3 SC)
Row 6: SC3tog
Weave in all loose ends.
To neaten doll and to make sewing the two pieces together easier,
SL ST all around the two doll pieces.
 Embroider two eyes and a mouth onto one piece
 Using the whip-stitch method, sew the two doll pieces together, using the
other loops of the SL ST stitches made all around the doll
 No need to stuff 🙂
The Hair:
With hair color yarn, join with a SL ST into a front loop on the front of the head
Work 4 SC into same loop, then work 4 SC into the back loop
Keep working 4 SC into a front loop, then 4 SC into a back loop, continue until
desired length is reached or use photo as guide.
Cut approx 26 x 26 cm lengths of yarn – depending on how many back loops you worked
(2 lengths of yarn for every loop)
Thread two at a time into your yarn needle
Inserting the needle around the SC worked in the back loop
pull through just half of the yarn
Do this for each back loop.
Note: you can tie small knots in the hair to avoid the hair being pulled out
Cut another piece of yarn or you can use a thin ribbon
Insert needle into the neck from one side and pull the yarn/ribbon through
 
 Tie around hair and knot
 Trim hair if necessary
