NOTE: the following are only suggestions for making the hair! You can do the hair any way you like!
The Hair: Princess
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.

Hair:
With brown double knitting/light worsted yarn and 3,50 mm hook

Join yarn into a loop on top of the head – front facing, *CH 6, SL ST into next loop. Repeat from * approx 6 to 7 times, SL ST into a loop on the back of the head – continue working in the back loops. Repeat from * approx 6 to 7 times.
