Hair

Cut Red Yarn approx. 15 cm long, around 21 strips

Going back to the hair line on the head, where your Front Loops are showing,

attach 2 Strips in the first and then 1 strip in the second continue along in each one of the Front Loops around the hair line.

Attach by folding in half, insert the hook, pull through and then hook the 4 strands and pull them through, tighten and continue the rest of the row, separate each strand than brush out the row. You can stop and organize the hair here. Or you can brush out all the strands, Plus the red top part of the head, enough to look like soft hair. And then style the hair.

And then you are done :D enjoy your new Lil Mermaid Ariel
