An increase in crochet is 2 places 2 stitches in 1 stitch from the previous row.

Stuff as you go for all body parts.  Do not over stuff as this will lead to the holes being very visible.  Rolling the limbs between your palms also helps to distribute the stuffing more evenly.

Hair

With hair colour and 4mm hook To create the hair I used various lengths of chain stitches from 25 – 40. In each CH SP I placed 3 HDC. For looser curls you can alternate 3 HDC, 2 HDC. Leave a long tail on each one for attaching to the hair cap securely. I attach as I go to see how the hair is framing the face.
