Dolly... Found this design while looking for something different to do. Dolly is done ITH in 5 hoopings. The design also comes with a complete set of ITH clothing with instructions. I chose to knit an outfit instead. Will give the outfit a try some time in the not too distant future.

Carolyn I usually use yarn You can wrap Round a metal knitting needlesoak good with water the bake in oven 'till dry. The baking seems to set so it stays curly for years. I then hand sew down middle of head one piece sewn in middle is for both sides. Or you can go the easy way buy a doll wig oruse scraps of faux fur for short hairLillian

Hi Carolyn,
Hair is done in 2 parts, the fringe and the back. Both are wound round cardboard. For the back, wind around cardboard and secure with tape in the centre and cut both ends attach to tear-away on both top and bottom and stitch. For the fringe, same idea, with the cardboard, but cut only one end after securing wool. the uncut side then becomes the fringe which is stitched to a piece of material and then stitched to the head, The back of the hair is glued down. :-)
