Instructions

Knit Wits - Step 1

1. Tuck the ring finger of the glove into the palm and stitch the hole closed.

2. Fill the glove (all but the cuff) with rice and tie it off tightly with a piece of yarn.

3. For the doll's head, fit a small rubber ball (or a Ping-Pong ball) into the cuff. Then, sew the glove closed to hold the ball in.

4. Make a wig by loosely wrapping yarn around your hand about fifty times to create a think hank.

5. Tie the strands together at one end of the hank, then cut the loop opposite the tie.

6. Stitch the tied portion to the top of the doll's head.

Finish up by stitching on button eyes and a tiny pom-pom nose.
