Pattern Description:

Going on a winter skiing vacation and looking for something different to wear? This is a fun hat for any age, especially high school through college. This pattern is a combination of written instructions and photo tutorial. It is classified in the EASY category for the crochet hat itself, and for the dreadlocks ponytail in the INTERMEDIATE category only because the steps are uncommon and not part of crocheting. You can make the hat in 1 day or 2 evenings. General Process: This hat is crochet on the inside with yarn A except for the turn-up (yarn B), and then the dreadlocks (yarn B) are threaded through and tied into a pony tail on the outside. The outer yarn (yarn B) should be a thick and thin changing yarn that would be knitted on size 13 - 19 knitting needles, generally referred to as super bulky, and/ or roving yarn. You can use all of the same yarn, or mix variegated and solids for a striped effect.



Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Variable - you determine final size, pattern is sized for adult small - large


  • approx. 100 yds yarn using size H hook
  • approx. 55-60 yds of super bulky/roving yarn for size 13-19 needles

You Will Also Need:

  • tapestry needle
  • Styrofoam head (get at Sally's for $4)
