I have a super cute and fun knitting pattern to share with you today. Sometimes when a designer is working on a book there ends up being an extra project that doesn't make it in to the book. And this cute doll hair with a bow project was an extra pattern that didn't fit in Fun and Fantastical Hats to Knit: Animals, Monsters & Other Favorites for Kids and Grownups.
If this looks like something you need to make for yourself or know someone who would rock a crazy curly knit hairdo
the free pattern and knit one up!
If you missed our post that featured the cute knit elf ears pattern from the book pop on over to check it out.

Mary Scott Huff, author of Fantastical Hats to Knit (CPi, 2014) began as a classically trained actor and theatrical costume designer, but accidentally became a computer programmer somewhere along the way. In writing her first two books, The New Stranded Colorwork, and Teach Yourself Visually Color Knitting, Mary fled the realm of Information Technology to pursue a more yarn-centered way of life. The many friends she found along the way have helped her become a nationally-recognized designer, teacher and author. A native of the Pacific Northwest, Mary shares a wee little house there with her husband, two children, some Scottish Terriers, and more yarn than is strictly necessary.
