Croshay, that hat looks great.  I love the little pocket.  What stitch did you use, I really like the look of it?

Thanks!  Smiley I used a combination of double, half double and single crochet stitches, the brim and pocket is done in single.

there's a pattern in the stitch 'n bitch book nation book called: Headline news. It's a cabled newsboy hat with a bill attached.  Pretty damn cute.  It even says in the description, "...could double as a Rasta cap with a few minor tweaks." 

  I'd suggest doing more increase and decrease rounds to make the overall hat bigger to accomodate for more hair.  The crocheted tams I've done are all just big huge disks on top with mirroring decrease rounds worked after you get to the size you want.  Do the decreases till the thing measures the size of the recipient's head where you want the hat to come to.  [[ or you could add a ribbing for the bottom band in which case it might look cool if you decreased so that it was a little bigger at the bottom than person's head so the ribbing (with smaller needles, of course) would sort of gather the bottom.  ]]
 
Just a thought...  =0)
BTW. thanks for the compliments! I'm amazed at how many posts this thread gets so long after it was written! It's great that it will always be here for new crocheters to learn from. Or for all the newbie heads out there who want to grow dreads and need some cool new hats to wear to show them off!

My boyfriend really wants one of these in rastafarian colours.
So do I ^ ^

I don't have dreads, but my hair is like 40" long, so I think I could use the space Smiley

everyone at my martial arts school either has or had dreadlocks, so it's pretty cool.

Speaking of other patterns, did any of you see the one in Knit 1 "the men's issue"? I modified it so it could fit more hair. and then about 4 people wanted me to make them one XD so of course I did

( I have some more pictures here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=102701.0)

Now I have to make this one! fwee I love the pocket idea too. . . hmmm
