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.

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.

“Crochet is an art and crocheters it’s artists. Each crafted item is unique and own to its crafter”
