I'm currently making a Heavy Baby, and would like to add some newborn baby hair, peeking out under the cap (what my dh and I affectionately call "duck fluff"). I have some mohair yarn, and have been crocheting it in a slightly concave circular shape, kind of like a yarmulke. Is the wig just a circle that covers the head, or does it need to be a specific shape other than a circle? To make it "fluff" up, I suppose I should just use a brush on the crochet, right? To make actual longer hair, I assume you weave the hair through the crochet cap; if so, should the crochet be a loose or a tight weave? Finally, does anybody have any thoughts on making the hair peek out from the cap? It seems a bit silly to go through the trouble of making this very time-consuming very tightly woven cap if almost all of it will be covered...has anybody used other solutions that would work better for this? Sorry for all the questions, but some of you really seem to be experts. Thanks in advance for all help!
