One of the fun parts of coming up with your own patterns is experimenting with different approaches to get a look that’s just right. And I’ve been doing a lot of experimenting with Lionel’s mane. The first approach was the simplest: just attach individual pieces of hair/yarn. Problem? It takes forever!

Over the weekend I tried messing around with the idea of making a sort of loop stitch “wig” that would be knit separately and then attached. Too fiddly and I didn’t like the way it looked.

But I think I’ve finally hit upon a look I like:

new hair for lionel!

Still a bit time consuming, but better than either of the previous options, and (I think) definitely the best looking!
