"Rasta" or Dready Tam pattern?
Anybody? Am looking for as many as I can find. Or a snood, but one that doesn't just cover the bun, IYKWIM.



Oh, and knitting patterns are good, too. Am okay with trying it crochet, but am on a knitting binge. We beginners have to follow our obsessions and see where they lead, right?

I searched far and wide for a knitted Rasta pattern, it seemed like all paths led to this...

I ended up making one, using a basic Tam pattern, and improvising as I went along.

Pardon the photo, I took it with my cell camera, and now the hat is off at college with a child O mine. :D

I skipped the *yo,K2tog,repeat from* after the ribbing, just cuz, I'm a rebel that way.

Wow. I like that. Best thing I've seen all week. Thanks.

The next question is, how about if you'd want to use a thinner yarn, a cotton? How do you change/work the pattern or the numbers of stitches, I guess, to do that?

Am enthused. Gonna make a new thread about that, too.

Not sure if you are still looking, but I ran across this one today that I think I'm going to try. I like the 'pithy' idea. :D

To make it more 'floppy' I think you would just keep going till you had the amount of 'sag' you wanted.
