Right now I'm crocheting one. I'm using the v stitch in order to get it strechy. It's won't be too warm but looks nice anyway. I'm around 15 cm and I want to do a bit more. What I did to get the size right: made the chain row with constant trying it on.

Also I knitted Knitty's calometry and I think it's perfect for dreads.

my natural dreads totally didnt work for me ((my hair is naturally VERY oily...as is my skin and nails...grr)) but i occassionally do plaited in wool double enders, and to tie them back i use calorimetry bands, pantas work well also, but are more of a pain to knit ((and i like the way the calorimetry looks 9.9 x 10 ^ inifinity times better)) and i  made two calorimetry's for a girl on the hair forum im part of, and she thought they were perfect for natural dreads too.  theyre also quite warm and sit right over your ears if you chose to wear them that way.

^ if your hair is naturally oily just wash more often, once a day even, just dont brush your hair. Remember, ALL hair types can knot, so ALL hair types can have locks, some just take longer then others.

A lot of ppl dont see results from naturals for about 6 months to a year. Naturals take a lot of patience and just forgetting you have hair lol

What's this v stich for crocheting? Is there some other word for it?

cheers

"so are that things that people think dreads are like true?"

Not unless you wash them regularly, if they are cleaned, washed, then they should not have a bad smell , make sure you use a resedue free shampoo, and NO conditioner. I also like to rince my dreads with tea from time to time, makes them smell yummy.

I wash mine once a week, for the most part, and they dont have a bad smell to them at all, and I have had dreads for 2 years.

"can a person with super thick straight brown hair get them"

Absolutly, any hair type can knot up, so any hair type can have dreads. It just takes time and a lot of patience.

So you are going the natural route eh? That method takes longer to make dreads, but I think they look amazing when they have locked up. Just relax, your hair wont stink if you wash it regularly.

Good luck

Actually washing more often is bad for dreads, or any hair. My hair gets really oily. If you don't wash it for a few days, then wash it, you start to train your hair to produce less oil. If you keep washing the oil away, it keeps making more and more until you HAVE to wash it everyday or it wil lbe unbearable.

Try it out. It works and your hair will feel cleaner and dread easier because of it.

Mitsie99, I lOVE LOVE LOVE the black and white dreads.  Mine are just ugh brown, but every time I look in the mirror I am surprised at how long they are.  They will be 5 in February, and there are 51 of them.  Finally, here's a pic!

Wow, i would love to see pictures of how they first started.

I have thick straight hair, and have dreads for almost a year now. They are backcombed. At the begining I had a tons of loose hair, but with the time and a bit of crocheting it sorted out. Nowdays they knot up by themselves mostly, however I still crochet in the tiny loose hair by the roots.
My hair was a bit oily but with a bit of trainging (and I think with the residue free soap) they are only geting oili after 14 days so I'm 100% happy. Still have some dandruff issue though.
And no they are not smelly at all. If I go to a bar with lot of smoke I can smell it the other day but a bit of the trea oil and aloe vera does wonders.
