Mohair weft tutorial

Please use  the instruction for your personal use or on your dolls for sale if you are giving tutorials based on my technique please  be so kind and give credit when credit is due.that is the right way of sharing knowledge.   Starting today I will teach you how to make a wefted Mohair wig .  I want to make sure that you will be making the best wig ever. And for that you need brushed Mohair or yarn of your choice I just like brushed mohair and weft of your choice . And this is how you make a nice and tight wig . And you probably wonder how can I do that well is the size crochet hook I use the smallest I can possibly crochet  with it is a little bit harder but the end result is amazing you will not have any gaps and it will appear more natural so get yourself a small crochet hook and then lets start .
I c
Here you can see how small my hook is but trust me it is worth it 



it is hart to see but I first crochet into the weft about 4 and then I fold it over to crochet in the round
crochet two single stitches in one opening to MAINTAIN a flat surface

just remember crochet two single crochet in one whole till it measures 4 inches ,or what ever size you need
Just keep going in the round 
Depending on the circumference of your dolls head Measure the flat part, mine measures 4 inches That's for a 13 inch circumference on my doll and then I start to single crochet 
because  you only crochet one in each hole you're not adding stitches anymore and it should start forming a cap

  7. I agree about the comment on spelling - also, it would really help to have punctuation in there. I feel like I'm translating a foreign language almost. I would love to understand the tutorial better!

  8. I just read the post that said you are in the process of translating some of the posts from German into English. Sorry, I didn't realize that they were in German - that's probably why some of it is a little hard to understand. Thanks for the tutorial!

  11. Outstanding tutorial! I have been making crochet wig caps for dolls, using stranded mohair yarn for the hair, but I never thought to crochet a weft of hair into it. This is truly inspired, and thank you so very much for sharing your technique with us!

    warmly,

    Beth
