Method

Body

To begin, you will need to make the basic Kozu Palm Pal bodies for each of our crochet dolls. You can find that free pattern here. Once you have made the body, come back here and we’ll begin Noor’s hair and clothes!

Hair

Hair Cap

Round 1: SC 6 into a magic ring.

Round 2: INC in each stitch around (12)

Round 3: (SC, INC) six times (18)

Round 4: (2 SC, INC) six times (24)

Round 5-9: SC in each stitch around (24)

Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing. Sew the hair cap onto the hair.

Now it is time to latch on the hair strands. For my doll, I went down a yarn size to sportsweight yarn for the strands because I wanted her hair be more fine. However, you can use the same weight of yarn that you used for the doll body — I often do that with my dolls and it looks great!. Measure the yarn from the front of your dolls hair cap down to the length that you want the hair to be and double the yarn, as each strand will be folded in half. Cut a number of strands that length because you will need a lot but you can always cut more once you run out!

To attach the yarn, you must fold your yarn in half, insert your hook into a stitch, and pull the loop through. You can then use your hand and pull the two ends between the loop to secure the strand.

The best way to attach the yarn is to begin by working along the hair line. So first strand the hair in each stitch around the edge of the hair cap. Next, insert strands on both sides of the hair parting for about a third of the way down the hair cap and one line at the edge of the parting, cutting across the hair cap. I have tried to show what I mean by that in the diagram below. The hair should be first inserted to the areas marked in pink.

Then take your remaining strands and strand them through out the hair until you are satisfied with the result. Once you have enough hair on your doll, you can trim the strands so that they are all even at the back, as they will vary in length depending on where they were inserted. Or you put your Covid-19 lockdown hair dressing skills to use and give her a fancy haircut 🙂

Clothes

The clothes patterns were designed using the same hook and yarn size as the doll. However, as you are making the clothes, keep trying them on your doll to ensure that they fit. If they are too big or too snug, go up or down a hook size.

Jeans

Round 1: Chain 18 and sl st to the first chain, being sure not to twist the chain.

Round 2: Chain 1 and HDC in each chain around. Sl st to the first stitch (18).

Round 3: Chain 1 and SC in each SC around. Sl st to the first stitch (18).

Round 4: Chain 1, INC, 8 SC, INC, 8 SC, and sl st to the first SC. (20)

Round 5: Chain 1, 10 SC, and sl st to the first SC. (10)

Round 6: Chain 1, INC, 9 SC, and sl st to the first SC (11)

Round 7-10 (4 rounds): Chain 1, SC around, and sl st to the first SC (11)

Now attach yarn to the first unworked stitch in Round 5 and repeat Rounds 5-10 for the second leg of the jeans. Fasten off leaving a long tail. Use the yarn tail to close up the gap between the legs of the jeans. Weave in all the ends.

Fasten off and weave in the ends.

Hairband

To make the band, chain a length that fits around your doll’s hair. The number of chains will vary depending on how much you’ve stuffed your doll and how much hair you’ve added on. Make a turning chain, and SC back, starting from the second chain on your hook. Fasten off. Sew the two ends of the band together and weave in the ends.

To make the bow, make a magic circle and (chain 2, 3 HDC, chain 2, sl st) twice in to the magic circle. Fasten off and leave a long tail. Wrap the tail a few times around the middle of your bow and sew it onto the band. Weave in the ends.
