2tog All Sts Of Final Row
There are alot of the way to create straight doll hair. You’ll be able to crochet every single hair at a time, you should use enjoyable fur and receive hair very quickly. You may embroider a nice hairstyle to your dolls head. You additionally may knot hair by hair to the head or make a fringe and start from this to have full hair that’s blowing in the wind.
This tutorial will present all methods I do know of and clarify how you can create them. Due to this fact I sorted the only parts of this tutorial like this: fun fur hair, crocheted hairstyles, embroidered haircuts and fringe type hair.
Fun FUR HAIR
Until now I preferred fun fur or fuzzy yarn to provide a doll some hair. It is very quick and looks very full.
For some real good tips about working with fuzzy yarn I wish to link to June of PlanetJune, she shares some actual good info on fuzzy yarns.
I additionally would like to add another tip: use a hook that’s large enough. This helps alot seeing your stitches and it is not necessary to crochet tight if you want to make hair.
You possibly can crochet simply within the round, like you’d when making the top of your doll, increase for as many rows as crucial but don’t get an even bigger circumfarance than the dolls head. Now go from right here and crochtet just a few extra rows without growing. You obtain a wig or a furry cap that you need to use as hair.
you also can create different types like a Mohawk haircut (I take advantage of this alot for my trolls, a Mohawk fits finest for trolls I feel ^_^)
The directions for this are:
1 — chain 25
2 — start in 3rd stitch from hook: make a double crochet (dc), make a dc in next st, triple crochet (tc) into the next 4 sts, dc into the next 5 sts, single crochet (sc) into next 12 sts
3 — proceed on different side of starting chain: sc 12 occasions, dc 5 times, tc 4 occasions, dc into subsequent 2 sts and end with a slipstitch
minimize your yarn and go away a quite long yarn end
To cut a long yarn end is an efficient tip for every hairstyle, this fashion you should utilize the yarn finish to sew the hair to the top and do not want so as to add extra yarn (further yarn means additional ends to weave in)
To crochet a haircut is as easy as to crochet your doll. You should use the identical sort of yarn you used to your doll and of course the identical hook. You possibly can crochet Ponytails or piggy tails like on this picture from the gifted Could (check out Isabelle and her flickr profile: pureEva).
Above is an image of the model I simply made, one thing that should appear like thick curled hair, a bit of bit rasta type – possibly it reminds a few of you of Carl, Jimmy Neutrons llama-loving pal, cause his hair is what I had in thoughts when making these:
While you need to recreate it go like this:
Edit: dr is a double ring, and m2 stands for a simpl increase: make two sts in one
1 — make a dr with 5 sts
2 — m2 x5
three til 5 — sc 10 sts
6 — sc8, sc2tog
7 — sc7, sc2tog
eight — sc6, sc2tog
9 — sc5, sc2tog
1 — make a dr with 6 sts
2 — m2 x6
3 til four — sc 12 sts
5 — sc10, sc2tog
6 — sc9, sc2tog
7 — sc8, sc2tog
8 — sc7, sc2tog
9 — sc6, sc2tog
10 — sc5, sc2tog
1 — make a dr with 8 sts
2 — m2 x8
three til 4 — sc 16 sts
5 — sc14, sc2tog
6 — sc13, sc2tog
7 — sc12, sc2tog
eight — sc11, sc2tog
9 — sc10, sc2tog
10 — sc9, sc2tog
11 — sc8, sc2tog
12 — sc7, sc2tog
thirteen — sc6, sc2tog
I made 3xA, 4xB, 2xC and sorted like this: C-B-C-B-A-A-B-A-B
after I’ve joined everything I crocheted in the spherical and decreased: (sc2tog, sc1) * for the primary row, and sc2tog all sts of last row, bind off and leave an extended yarn tail, disguise all yarn ends of the single “hair curls” and use the long tail to sew it to the top.
You might prefer to stuff the single “hair curls”, if you don’t they’d kind a little nearer to the pinnacle.
When crochting it’s also possible to make curly hair by adding bobbles as you go: start like you’d for making the top of your doll and add bobbles as you go, each few stitches in additional acurate method (each second row each 2nd st for instance) or wherever it matches and you desire to your bobble to be.
Another method for curly hair would be to add chained stitches:
Above you also can see my troll with a brief haired curly wig.
To make something like this:
1 — start identical to for a regular doll head
2 — making a hair: chain 6 sts, and beginning in 2nd stitch from hook sc into the following 5 sts.
3 — go on with the pattern of yourdolls head
for this quick haired model I made “hair” every three sts and every 2nd row. The row inbetween two “hair-rows” was very useful to maintain monitor of my sts. See the picture under for understanding the first stitch after a hair and the last stitch earlier than a hair (inexperienced arrows). If you crochet round a hair take care that you just hold the “hair” away from you, behind your yarn and hook.
If you elongate the chains they begin curling robotically and may look just like the hair of this beautiful bride, created by the lovely Adi (see her profile at flickr: slipstich)
Adi additionally added that she made this couple for her sister’s marriage ceremony invitation. Since she has plenty of curly hair it took her nearly a week to crochet the hair. The rest of the doll took 3 days..
And these acurate curling curls had been made a bit bit totally different than mine:
Every curl is fabricated from two rows:
1 — chain 30 (roughly, relying on location)
2 — 2x hdc in every second ch.
Yet another phrase on the width: by no means change into larger than the size of your dolls head. The wig / cap will stretch and therefore match your doll. If you’re undecided test the dimensions as you go as usually as you like. You might wish to loosen your tension a bit to be absolutely positive your hair will match your dolls head.
when you want embroidering you may wish to prefer this methodology. It creates very neat and sensible hairstyles. You possibly can add different colored spots to add much more actuality to this brazilian virgin remy hair dolls head.
Have a take a look at the beautiful dolls made by Mia (ravelry hyperlink). She additionally has written up a really detailed and informative tutorial on how you can create any such hair. I could not do any better so have a take a look at this great tutorial.
fringe style hair
to make a fringe is a improbable way to have really lengthy hair, hair that you just even might comb.
There are 3 ways to add hair like this: one can be a crocheted frindge (when making a brand new stitch hold a loop together with your finger and proceed to crochet). This works similar to written above, you begin like for a doll head and crochet in the round till your wig is completed. However there’s a rub in it. I wouldn’t minimize these fringes, they may come off too simply.
One other way is to add hair by hair: knotting. Knotting can create very lengthy hair, because you minimize your desired hair size before adding it to the head
Here’s just slightly example of how it’d look. You possibly can cut it and I think (I haven’t got very long time expertise with it) that a pure wool yarn may be better, it might felt slightly and help keeping the one items of hair in place.
Making a fringe with a lace loom is a real cool method that creates nice hair for shorter hair cuts. Christen of Creepy Cute Crochet has written up a really helpful tutorial for making a fringe with a lace loom.
