Raggedy "Hair" Tutorial from ORP! To get started we will start with Picture #1-Wrap a strand of yarn around your fingers several times to form loops as shown in picture #1. Picture #2-Starting hand stitching these loops at the top/center of the raggedy's head. I hand stitch the loops right down the seam line of the head. Picture #3-When the hair on one side is finished, continue stitching the loops down the other side of the head. I usually try to not go any further down the head then the temples with the hair. Picture #4-This is the "wild" shot. The top is now finished. One more step to go. Picture #5-Start stitching the loops across the back of the raggedy's head in a straight line. When you are all finished you can go back and clip the top of each loop or you can leave your raggedy's hair "loopy". I like to clip each loop but leave a few "loops" in the bang area. I especially like to leaves some "loops" on my girl raggedies. If you purchase ORP's Raggedy Annie & Andie Pattern, I state the actually size of the strands of yarns that I use and how many strands that I use on these raggedies but this will give you a general idea of how I do Raggedy hair.
