Hi I am going to be making a smaller waldorf doll, prob about 6-8 in or so, maybe 10"
but I'm wondering if anyone knows about how large the head should be for these sizes in circumference.
I made a 12" doll from a kit, and it's circumf was 10"
I suppose I could just guesstimate lol but I'd hate to have a little doll w/too large or small of a noggin' heheh
any help is greatly appreciated

I once made a 9" waldorf baby doll and the head circumference was 8". It seems like a good size for that size doll.

According to the book I have, the head should make up 1/4 of the total height. Of the remaining height, half should be the trunk, and half for the legs. The arms, when brought down alongside the body, should be long enough to reach just beyond the level of the crotch.

Hope that helps!
