Here is the second installment of my rag doll tutorial. This was by far one of the most difficult videos I have made. Not because the process is hard, but because there are so many different styles of hair that can be selected and so many methods with which it can be applied.
I spent a lot of time deciding what I would share because I didn’t want anyone to feel limited in the approach they had to use. Not to mention, there was a whole lot of yarn that did not want to cooperate and stay in place while filming! Apparently it does not take direction well.
I really enjoyed using multi-colored hair on this doll. Mixing and matching colors strand by strand was a lot of fun, and I really like the look it created.
On the above doll the majority if her hair is the dark purple color. The wefts added at the bottom were all the same color, however at the top, I added just a bit of contrast.
I hope that you can take the methods used in this video and expand upon them to make something all your own 🙂
I love the drastically different looks you can create by altering hair styles and color.
Here is my rag doll pattern in case you missed it in the last post. The doll is just over 14 inches tall when completed.

Thank you so much for this tutorial! It’s been impossible to find a good hair tutorial for my doll since her head is flat instead of round (going for classic rag doll). Thank you thank you thank you!!!! ❤
You are very welcome! I am glad the video is helpful 🙂
