Fixing dolls’ hair

Hello!

I posted a lot of Christmassy things lately.
Time for something else!
In this post, I’ll explain how I give my dolls hair.

This method seems a bit complicated at the beginning but trust me it is a great way. I found it in one of the first knitting books I bought many years ago.

Give it a go and let me know what you think.

Insert the needle in the same stitch and pull it up at the next stitch.06

Pull the thread tight.07
