- Attach a few strands of thin yarn at one go (more hair less work)
- Attach thick yarn tassels but then separate each piece to strands (you’ll get thick, beautiful curly hair)
- Comb the tassels till they are evenly fluffy (my favorite dolls’ hair! looks like wool for felting)
Fringes on your amigurumis’ scarves look just as good as on your own :) But what is really cool with crocheted toys, is the fact that fringe can not only be a decoration but the clothes itself! 1 round done with single crochets and tassels around - and you have a grass Hawaii skirt! a simple crocheted bra and tassels attached underneath and combed - and you have a nice and thin dress!
These are the ideas I have already applied when designing my toys. After you have combed the tassels to make them completely fluffy they become really easy to shape. You can wet your hair or use hair spray to fixate the shape even better. I have colored the tips of the feathers and sprayed them for the American Indian Penguin. And the fire holds its shape without anything
