So I'm working on Needle Noodle's Creepy Cute Crochet's "Corporate Zombie" pattern...and I'm stuck on how to attach the hair! Has anyone worked on this pattern? It says sew the fringes on one side, then another...which sides? The left and right, or front and back to make "bangs" and "back hair?"

I tried the "zig zag" TWICE but he ended up with a lot of bald patches... and the photos in the book doesn't look like he has bald patches.

I'm ready to give up...

I'm so confused  Huh Huh Huh

I wrote a bit more about this on the other thread about this book, but here's the part that relates to the Corporate Zombie:

I still don't know what place in zig-zags on the head means. I just sewed it in two strips down the center so it would hang down both sides. I think that instruction in the book of having the fringe "pointed in the opposite direction of how it will sit when finished" doesn't work for the zombie, I think it probably makes more sense for the Queen Vampire or Amazon where you gather the hair in a ponytail afterwards.

You could try sewing it down the centre of the head. It looks pretty good in the end. I mean, he's a zombie, his hair probably shouldn't look perfect.

Have you considered contacting NeedleNoodles and asking her? I'm not sure if she posts her e-mail address on her blog, but you could try contacting her through the comments section.
