2tog All Sts Of Final Row
There are alot of how to create straight doll hair. You may crochet every single hair at a time, you can use fun fur and obtain hair in a short time. You possibly can embroider a nice hairstyle to your dolls head. You additionally may knot hair by hair to the top or make a fringe and start from this to have full hair that’s blowing in the wind.
This tutorial will show all methods I know of and explain how you can create them. Therefore I sorted the only elements of this tutorial like this: fun fur hair, crocheted hairstyles, embroidered haircuts and fringe style hair.
Enjoyable FUR HAIR
Till now I most well-liked enjoyable fur or fuzzy yarn to present a doll some hair. It is very quick and looks very full.
For some real good recommendations on working with fuzzy yarn I want to hyperlink to June of PlanetJune, she shares some real good info on fuzzy yarns.
I also would like so as to add yet one more tip: use a hook that is big sufficient. This helps alot seeing your stitches and it isn’t essential to crochet tight whenever you wish to make hair.
You can crochet merely within the round, like you would when making the top of your doll, improve for as many rows as mandatory but don’t get an even bigger circumfarance than the dolls head. Now go from here and crochtet just a few extra rows with out rising. You receive a wig or a furry cap that you should use as hair.
you can also create other kinds like a Mohawk haircut (I exploit this alot for my trolls, a Mohawk suits greatest for trolls I feel ^_^)
The directions for this are:
1 — chain 25
2 — begin in 3rd stitch from hook: make a double crochet (dc), make a dc in next st, triple crochet (tc) into the following 4 sts, dc into the following 5 sts, single crochet (sc) into next 12 sts
3 — continue on different facet of starting chain: sc 12 instances, dc 5 instances, tc four occasions, dc into subsequent 2 sts and finish with a slipstitch
minimize your yarn and leave a fairly long yarn end
To chop a long yarn finish is a good tip for every hairstyle, this way you need to use the yarn finish to sew the hair to the head and don’t need so as to add further yarn (further yarn means further ends to weave in)
To crochet a haircut is as straightforward as to crochet your doll. You need to use the same type of yarn you used for your doll and naturally the same hook. You possibly can crochet Ponytails or piggy tails like on this image from the talented Could (check out Isabelle and her flickr profile: pureEva).
Above is a picture of the fashion I simply made, something that ought to look like thick curled hair, somewhat bit rasta model – maybe it reminds a few of you of Carl, Jimmy Neutrons llama-loving pal, trigger his hair is what I had in thoughts when making these:
While you wish to recreate it go like this:
Edit: dr is a double ring, and m2 stands for a simpl enhance: 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
8 — sc6, sc2tog
9 — sc5, sc2tog
1 — make a dr with 6 sts
2 — m2 x6
three til four — sc 12 sts
5 — sc10, sc2tog
6 — sc9, sc2tog
7 — sc8, sc2tog
eight — sc7, sc2tog
9 — sc6, sc2tog
10 — sc5, sc2tog
1 — make a dr with 8 sts
2 — m2 x8
3 til 4 — sc sixteen sts
5 — sc14, sc2tog
6 — sc13, sc2tog
7 — sc12, sc2tog
8 — sc11, sc2tog
9 — sc10, sc2tog
10 — sc9, sc2tog
eleven — sc8, sc2tog
12 — sc7, sc2tog
13 — sc6, sc2tog
I made 3xA, 4xB, 2xC and sorted like this: C-B-C-B-A-A-B-A-B
after I’ve joined the whole lot I crocheted within the spherical and decreased: (sc2tog, sc1) * for the first row, and sc2tog all sts of final row, bind off and go away an extended yarn tail, disguise all yarn ends of the one “hair curls” and use the lengthy tail to sew it to the pinnacle.
You may wish to stuff the only “hair curls”, if you don’t they would kind a bit nearer to the head.
When crochting you can too make curly hair by adding bobbles as you go: begin like you would for making the top of your doll and add bobbles as you go, each few stitches in more acurate way (every second row every 2nd st for example) or wherever it suits and you would like your bobble to be.
Another approach for curly hair can be to add chained stitches:
Above you can also see my troll with a brief haired curly wig.
To make one thing like this:
1 — start identical to for an everyday doll head
2 — making a hair: chain 6 sts, and beginning in 2nd stitch from hook sc into the next 5 sts.
3 — go on with the sample of yourdolls head
for this short haired version I made “hair” every three sts and every 2nd row. The row inbetween two “hair-rows” was very helpful to maintain track of my sts. See the image under for understanding the primary stitch after a hair and the last stitch before a hair (green arrows). While you crochet round a hair take care that you simply hold the “hair” away from you, behind your yarn and hook.
When you elongate the chains they start curling automatically and may look just like the hair of this lovely 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 every week to crochet the hair. The remainder of the doll took 3 days..
And these acurate curling curls were made a little bit bit totally different than mine:
Every curl is product of two rows:
1 — chain 30 (roughly, relying on location)
2 — 2x hdc in every second ch.
Yet one more phrase on the width: by no means turn into bigger than the dimensions of your dolls head. The wig / cap will stretch and therefore fit your doll. If you’re undecided test the size as you go as usually as you like. You would possibly prefer to loosen your tension a bit of to be absolutely positive your hair will match your dolls head.
when you want embroidering you would possibly prefer to choose this methodology. It creates very neat and lifelike hairstyles. You may add different coloured spots so as to add even more actuality to this dolls head.
Have a take a look at the beautiful dolls made by Mia (ravelry link). She additionally has written up a very detailed and informative tutorial on how one can create any such hair. I could not do any higher so have a look how to cut layers in medium hair at this nice tutorial.
fringe type hair
to make a fringe is a improbable strategy to have really long hair, hair that you just even may 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 continue to crochet). This works similar to written above, you start like for a doll head and crochet within the spherical till your wig is finished. But there’s a rub in it. I would not reduce these fringes, they might come off too easily.
One other manner is to add hair by hair: knotting. Knotting can create very lengthy hair, since you reduce your desired hair size earlier than including it to the head
Here is just a little bit instance of how it might look. You possibly can reduce it and I believe (I haven’t got long time expertise with it) that a pure wool yarn could be better, it may felt slightly and assist preserving the single pieces of hair in place.
Making a fringe with a lace loom is an actual cool way that creates great hair for shorter hair cuts. Christen of Creepy Cute Crochet has written up a very useful tutorial for making a fringe with a lace loom.
