How to attach the tresses for your crochet doll?
For this method of attaching the hair, you will either need ready-made doll tresses (you can buy them in handicraft stores, in online stores or from needlewomen who make and sell them themselves), or do them yourself by sewing the prepared hair material on a sewing machine.
You can use both artificial and natural tresses. It is more convenient to attach artificial tresses, because they are tangle less, but natural tresses look more beautiful. Although, it all depends on the doll and the result you want to get.
At first glance, the process of attaching tresses into the head takes a lot of time, but if you add up the time spent on crocheting the head with the time spent on attaching the hair to the finished head, the difference is insignificant.
You can attach hair to the head both when crocheting with right and with wrong side out, you just need to apply the tress to the outer side the head.
In this video I am crocheting with the wrong side out, but I think after watching it will be clear how to do this when crocheting with the right side out. Do not forget to stuff the head during the crocheting process, as you usually do.
For a small head of a doll about 20 centimeters tall, I use about a meter of tresses, for a larger head, a longer tress may be needed.
