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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY crochet chain stitch single crochet slip stitch GAUGE Variable SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Variable - you determine final size, pattern is sized for adult small - large

Recommended with this pattern

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

I have always loved to knit and crochet and to make my own presents for friends and family, but I have mostly been a seasonal knitter…Christmas presents and winter birthdays. I can knit really fast too. I learned knitting and crocheting in second grade and have loved it ever since. I love color and love to design, having worked in architecture for a long time. My granddaughter also helps me with advice on what is in style especially for teens, so I try to translate that into my designs. I enjoy working with bulky yarns, they add so much texture to an accessory. The patterns I write also use mostly bulky yarns, so the project works up fast. I design easy accessories that anyone can afford to make, hopefully in one evening. My patterns focus on beginner knitters and using affordable yarns. I think it is a shame that knitting (and sewing) have become a rich person's hobby, so that most aren't even interested in learning the craft, because they can't afford to buy the materials.
