Crafting Cozy Hats for Your Dinkum Dolls
Get ready to level up your Dinkum Dolls' winter wardrobe with a touch of DIY magic! Say goodbye to chilly days and hello to cosy vibes as we and @hellominibianco show you how to whip up adorable, no-knit hats that will have your Dinkums looking extra cute and snug. Follow along for a step-by-step guide 🧶❄️
Measure your Dinkum Doll’s head (leaving an additional 2cm at the end to glue the tab) and cut a cardboard strip to size (approx. 2-3cm wide). With a hot glue gun or stapler, join the ends to make a circle. This will be the base of your knit hat.
Cut 30-40 pieces of yarn that are 40-45cm long depending on the doll's head size and yarn thickness.
Double up each piece of yarn and make a loop around the piece of cardboard. Pull the ends of the yarn through the loop.
Repeat Step 2 until the cardboard base is filled. Make sure to pull each piece of yarn tightly so it stays in place.
Twist and push the ends of the yarn through the hole so you turn the hat inside out.
Use a piece of yarn to tie a double knot.
Trim off the excess yarn to create a pompom shape. And voila! A cosy, no-knit hat for your Dinkum Doll.
