Attaching the hair
Cut out brown yarns to the length you want your hair to be or even longer, so that you can arrange it after the hair is done. We will attach the hair to both of the dolls as visible in the pictures below, in the front loops of rounds 17-20 of the head.
After attaching all off the hair, we can trim the hair as we wish. For Mini Skittle with bangs and for Mini Randy I recommend trimming the hair only after the hat is done.
The dress is made with pink yarn and a 2.5 mm hook. Crochet in rows until row 7 (included) and in circles from row 8 on wards. While you crochet in rows at the end of each row chain one and turn unless it is specified otherwise.
