Break yarn and draw through remaining stitches. Fasten securely.
You can pretty much do the hair however you prefer. This was the first time I’d done doll hair like this, and I dont really recommend it. I wrapped the yarn around a small book several times, and broke the yarn. I cut the ends on each side (the “loops”) and sewed right down the middle to attach it to the dolls head.
Again, this is something you can do however you prefer.
CO 6 sts. Using I-cord method, work until piece measures 3 inches, or to your desired length. Cut yarn and draw through remaining sts, fastening securely. Attach them to the dolls body just above the dress/skin line.
