Crochet Dreadlocks Hat

Project Description

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Crochet Dreadlocks Hat Link to website or photo www.craftsy.com/pattern/edit/1291 What are you most proud of? That I actually wrote the pattern, it took quite some time to write all the steps and give all the background information, I had never done it before. I researched other patterns to see the methods and terminology and tried to stay within those same guidelines and organization. What advice would you give someone starting this project? 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.

What you will need

  • Loops and Threads Impeccable and Trendsetter Bolero or Lion Brand Bolero
