So I've been knitting a lot lately and got a request to make a tam for a friend who is growing out dreads. He wanted a dark brown and dark green hat so I made him this.


The pictures didn't come out so well because I had to use my dad's cheap camera since mine is broken.


Slouchy for his dreads.


And just a picture of what it looks like on the head, my head anyway.

If anyone is interested in making one I could write up the pattern. It's fairly simple and easy.

Okay here is the pattern, it's my first attempt at writing one so let me know if you have questions.


I used Red Heart Simply Soft yarn and 4.25mm DPN's. You can change the size of the needle to make it bigger.

Abbreviations: MC= Main Color, CC= Contrasting Color, KF&B= Knit Front and Back, K= Knit, Ktog= Knit together.

Use 4 DPNs and cast on 80 stitches with MC. (20 stitches on each DPN.)
Work in 2X2 ribbing(  K2, P2) for one inch.

Using CC Increase Row: *KF&B 2 times, K2* (Repeat from * to end of round)

Rows 1-2: Knit using CC to end of round (Including increase row, you should have 3 rows of CC by the end)

Rows 3-8: Knit using MC to end of round ( you should have 6 rows of MC)

Rows 9-11: Knit Using CC to end of round

Rows 12-17: Knit Using MC to end of round

Rows 18-20: Knit Using CC to end of round

Rows 20-25: Knit Using MC to end of round

Rows 26-28: Knit Using CC to end of round

Rows 29-34: Knit Using MC to end of round

Rows 35-37: Knit Using CC to end of round

Your hat should measure around 6 1/2 inches from cast on to stitches on DPNs. Or you could keep going if you want it longer and slouchier.

Decreasing Rows:

Row 38: Using MC *K8, Ktog 1 time* (repeat from * to end)

Row 39: Using MC knit to end of round

Row 40: Using MC *K7, Ktog 1 time* (knit from * to end)

Row 41: Using MC knit to end of round

Row 42: Using MC *K6, Ktog 1 time* (repeat from * to end)

Row 43: Using MC knit to end of round

Row 44: Using CC * K5, Ktog 1 time* (repeat from * to end)

Row 45: Using CC Knit to end of round

Row 46: Using CC * K4, Ktog 1 time* (repeat from * to end)

This is the end of using the contrasting color so cut your CC yarn and leave it to be weaved in when you're done Cheesy

Row 47: Using MC knit to end of round

Row 48: Using MC *K3, Ktog 1 time* (repeat from * to end)

Row 49: Using MC knit to end of round

Row 50: Using MC *K2, Ktog 1 time* (repeat from * to end)

Row 51: Using MC knit to end of round

Row 52: Using MC *K1, Ktog 1 time* ( repeat from * to end)
 
Row 53: Using MC knit to end of round

Row 54: Using MC Ktog to end of round.

Do not remove DPNs yet. Cut an extra long tail and weave it through remaining stitches on needle. Anchor down and pull tight. Finish up by weaving in ends.

Phew! That was a lot to remember. Hopefully this pattern is easy to follow. If you have problems let  me know.

so, i made one using your pattern, except i cut out five rows, used seed stitch, and didn't stripe. i'm kinda wishing i'd left those five rows in, though. :[ other than that, i love it so so so much! and i'll probably be using this pattern EXACTLY for my next one, as i'm making it for a friend's birthday, and i want it to be super nice. any suggestions as to what color to use with hot pink? not black.

btw, your pattern was very easy to follow. :] and i loved your end result, as well as mine.
