Skill Level:

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Double Crochet - DC
  • 2-DC TOG

Pattern Description:

Learn a new stitch and make a unique tam for your gorgeous dreads!
This pattern uses DK weight yarn which is lightweight and perfect for warmer weather. If you'd like a heavier tam, than you can substitute with Aran weight yarn. The tam will be slightly bigger, and the gauge will be off just a bit, but since this tam is adjustable it won't make much of a difference.
Tam will fit dreads up to a little longer than shoulder length. If you'd like to adjust the length of your tam, do so on rows 8-9, 12-14 and/or 17-18 to make it easier.


6 dc's/tr's and 3 rows = 2 inches.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 12 inches from the top of the hat to the brim edge.
  • 14 inches across the widest part of the hat.
  • 24 inches around the rim of the hat.
  • *Hat will be adjustable after adding the drawstring, so will fit any size head.


  • I hook - 5.50mm.
  • 3 different colors of DK Weight Yarn in a dark, medium and light shade. - Atleast 140 yards, 128 metres in total.

You Will Also Need:

  • Yarn needle to weave in ends.
  • Cord stop or beads for the drawstring.
