21  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: Seeking pro suggestions for doll/ amigurumi hair on: June 11, 2009 08:38:17 PM
Hi! The way that I do the hair on my dolls, is:

I crochet a head cap in a spiral, and sew it onto the head. Then, starting at the center of the head cap, I make huge backstitches (leaving tall loops, however long you want the hair) in a spiral using the spaces between rows, all the way out to the last row of the head cap. Then, I tie off the end, cut the loops, and give a haircut/style. The benefit to this method is that you can manipulate the hair in any direction you want, instead of having to set it in a permanent direction. The only downside is that the hair can be very thick, but skipping stitches/rows and doing less loops can solve that.

I hope your finished product comes out just as you imagine it!

Rupert is so great! I love that he is pink, and a boy, and the top hat is just perfect. The tentacles are such neat little spirals, and he's just so beautifully assembled! Fantastic pattern, and fantastic execution!!

Thank you! I'm thinking of tackling a Sally replica in the fall/winter. I need a break first, cause she'll be even more of a challenge!

Thanks again for all of the compliments!!
