Can this be done? Would the hair end up too full for the doll's head? I've read that pulling the yarn through the skin fabric is difficult and seems like it could weaken the whole skin. What if I sewed individual yarn on with needle and thread? I don't like how the hair line of the crochet cap looks. Maybe I should do a smaller crochet cap and sew individual yarn to define the hairline in a more natural looking way. Looking for any tips or advice; I'm new at hair (I've chickened out and sewn caps on all my previous dolls!) This is for my baby girl's first birthday this spring. I'm using single ply handspun-by-a-friend, walnut-shell-dyed-by-me wool yarn so I want to get it right! I'm trying to emulate Ruprecht's handspun long hair on etsy (don't know if I'm allowed to link, but her dolls are lovely). Thank you!!!
