Followed the directions. If I were to do it again, I might do more stitches through the back loop so it was easier to crochet the hair on. But only the back of the head, so the beginning of round wasn’t so prominent on the front. And, maybe a different, more rounded nose. But the directions are very good as written!

I made this for a co-worker/ex-boyfriend’s Dad who is going through cancer treatment right now. He used to make fake shrunken heads and sell them on eBay.
