How to Make a Raggedy Ann Doll

Step 3: Hair

I used the Vanna's Choice Cranberry for the main hair. For the highlights, I used Lion's Suede Scarlet.

You'll need a needle with a large eye to get the yarn threaded. Don't double thread. If you can't get the needle and yarn through, use a flat, rubber jar opener to yank it through.

Pull the yarn almost to the end, leaving about 2.5 inches of length or longer. Cut the yarn, and tie it in a knot.

I made this doll's hair thick, but you don't really need to. Work your way in a circle around the back of her head until it's filled in. Once finished, take the suede yarn and pull through some highlights.
