I'm working on an ami for a swap and I am at a loss on how to do the hair. Without giving too much away, it needs to be flowy, long hair. I've made hair using the method in Creepy Cute Crochet (if you're familiar with the book), but that takes a long time to make a full head of hair.

Any other ideas? Help please!

Personally, I use this method:

I do change it up sometimes though. I wish I could find a way to do it easier, but I can't. I find if you use really thick yarn, you can place the strands further apart and it still looks fine. Smiley
Hope that helps!

I do it the same way as amydice.  Benefit of doing it that way is that you don't get bald patches where the skin color shows through.  And +1 on using bulky yarn for hair!  Also, handspun yarn, or another thick n thin yarn makes for fun dreads Smiley

I also make the wigs that way but I mix it up and maybe put two rows together as a part and then around the sized and that's about it. It's a little time consuming but looks great.

I use this method: http://esshaych.blogspot.com/2009/09/amigurumi-hair-tutorial.html

If your yarn is thin, you can use double threads. If your yarn is thick, then just use a single thread.
