Well, we'd need to know the pattern (have it posted here?) in order to crochet along. I saw one similar I'd like to do. not a tam, but the same style.. the hat part is just smaller (I don't have dreds so I dont really have a need for a tam)

I don't have dreads either, but I'm making some synthetic ones and I want to make a tam so i'll join you.  =D

Here's Sarah's pattern...
Quote
So, for the tam, just
  --make a small circle (chain 3 or 4 usually) and join with slip stitch, then
  --chain up to whatever stitch you like to use if you like crocheting in rounds.  If you like to just go and go like I do in a spiral, you can kinda just start stitching.  I mainly use sc, and hdc I think it's called?  Where you do *yo, insert hook, pull up a loop, yo, and pull through all loops on hook*.  Anyway, then once you've got your circle,
   --do as many stitches as you can fit inside the circle- just working into the big hole there.  You'll probably get like, 6-12 maybe.  Try to get an even number.  Cause even numbers are cool and also divisible by 2. duh.  Ok, then.
  --Then the first time around, you're pretty much swatchin it- to see how many increases you'll need for the gauge and yarn you've got. Start out like this:  (use whatever stitch you want- I'll just use sc as an ex. and don't forget to mark the beginning of the rounds with something)
  --2 sc in every sc around.  then
  -- *2sc in 1st st, sc in nxt st*, repeat from * to * across.
  -- *2sc in 1st st, sc in nxt 2 st*;  repeat **
  -- *2sc in 1st st, sc in nxt 3 st*; repeat **
  -- *2sc in 1st st, sc in nxt 4 st*; repeat **
ETC. Keep going like this
  --until you can either tell that it's going to lay flat, or you can see that it's getting ripply (too many increases) or it's cupping into a dome shape (too few increases). 
  --If you have too few or too many increases, rip it back until you're at the part where you're stitching into the big circle opening, and if you have too many increases, do fewer stitches in the circie.  If you have too few increases, put more stitches into the circle.  Then rinse and repeat until you get it to lie pretty much flat. 
  -- then keep increasing like that, adding one more sc between increases every round, until the frizbee thing is pretty big- depends on the amount of dreads going in how big you want it.  Mine end up being about 12-13 inches for hats that fit a lot of dreads like mine.  Smaller for someone without dreads. 
  --Then do a few rounds even- no increases.  I do about 3 or 4 I think.  Then start decreasing.
  --Decrease in the same way as you increased.  Look at the last row on increases- how many sc were between increases? 12? 15?  Use that for the # of stitches between decreases, and work your way back down.  15, then 14, then 13, each round.  with the decreases between.  OK?
  Then once it fits your head, stop and work a couple rows even again.  then add the bill if you want. 
  ***I realize the page I linked to is gone or having issues, so here's that pattern.  I didn't write it, and I give mad props to the mama who did.  She rocks the house and was super kynd to share! 
  Adding the Bill:
   "used a worsted weight yarn and 5mm hook (size H?)

use a beret or tam recipe, something like this rasta tam or this granny beret might be neat.

When the crown of the hat is completed work the first two rows of sc for the band and tie off. (I started the band with a contrasting color.)

join yarn with a slip stitch about 15 sts from the center back.

row 1 - (working in the front loops only for this row) ch 1, sc in same st, sc in next 24 sts turn

row 2 - ch 1, sc in same st, sc next 2 sts tog, sc in next 6 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 6 sts, sc next 2 sts tog, sc in next st, turn

row 3 - ch 1, sc in same st, sc next 2 sts tog, sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 9 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 4 sts, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next st, turn

row 4 - ch1, sc in same st, sc next 2 sts tog, sc in next 2 st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 13 st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 2 st, sc next 2 sts tog, sc in next sc, turn

row 5 - ch 1, sc in same st, sc next 2 sts tog, 2 sc in next sc, sc in next 17 sc, 2 sc in next st, sc next 2 sts tog, sc in next st. tie off.

join yarn with a slip stitch to center back and work 3 rows sc around band and brim (last row can be in a contrasting color, if you want.)"
  In her own words, ladies.  You got it here!
OK, go be creative!! And post pics here when you're done!  I want to see, dammit!  Or at least send me a message and a link to your thread!
Peace!
Sarah

I'm using cotton yarn, too.  It should work fine =D.  I don't have dreads, but I'm buying some sythetic hair to make synthetic dreads because I love them!

I've been reading up on tams and what people make them out of and most dreadheads suggest using wool yarn. wool attracs hair and makes your dreads fuzzier and helps them knot up better as I understand it. I'im planning on dreading my hair very soon and I  want to make my own tam to keep them in. Now i just gotta learn how to crochet...

hey check out this link. http://learntocrochet.lionbrand.com/ on the "get a grip" page, the second way they show to hold the hook is waaaay easier. i tried to learn by having someone teach me in person, but i got way too confused and frusterated, i ended up going to the library and getting a book and teaching myself Smiley

yeah, wool does help dreads fuzz a bit...it's also a "drier" yarn, breathes well. i am unfortunately allergic to wool, though Undecided so cotten or hemp are usually the direction i tend to go in.

would you believe i still havent finished my tam?? i was sooo into it a couple of weeks ago, but now i have a bunch of other crap to do, so hopefully one night htis week i can sit down and finish her off! Roll Eyes

Hey,

I used this pattern for the hat, but I added some extra rounds for more lenght.

INSTRUCTIONS:
Specialty Stitch: Decreasing Dc (Dec Dc)
Yo, insert hk into st, Yo, pull through. Yo pull through 2 loops. Yo, insert hk into next st. Yo, pull through.  Yo, pull through 2 loops. Yo, pull through all remaining loops on hk.

Ch 5. Connect to form ring.
Round 1: Ch 3 (serves as 1st Dc, here and through out). Work 15 Dc into ring. Connect to beg ch. Round 2: Ch 3. Work 2 Dc into each st. Connect to beg ch.
Rounds 3: Ch 3. Work 1 Dc into same st.  *Work 1 Dc into next 3 sts.  Work 2 Dc into next st. Repeat from * around circle.  Connect to beg ch.
Round 4-6: Ch 3. Work 1 Dc into same st.  *Work 1 Dc into next 4 sts.  Work 2 Dc into next st. Repeat from * around circle.  Connect to beg ch.
Round 7-8: Ch 3. Work 1 Dc into same st.  *Work 1 Dc into next 8 sts.  Work 2 Dc into next st. Repeat from * around circle.  Connect to beg ch. (This is where you can adjust the overall Width of your hat.  Add as many rounds as needed to achieve the floppy of the hat.)
Rounds 9-11: Ch 3. Work 1 Dc into same st.  Work 1 Dc into each st around circle. Connect to beg ch. (With these rows you can adjust the overall length of your hat to accommodate the length of your Dreadlocks.  Just add as many rows as you need.)
Rounds 12-15: Ch 3. Work 1 Dc into same st. *Work 1 Dc into next 6 st.  Work 1 Dec. Dc into sts 7 & 8. Repeat from * around hat.  Connect to beg ch. (This is where you finish your hat to fit your head.  Add as many rows as needed to cinch the hat to your head size or stop at the particular Round where it fits your head.)
Last Round(s): Ch 1-2 (depending on size of st.) Work 1 Sc or Hdc into each st. Connect to beg ch. You can work as many rounds as you like to create a finished edge or even a hat bad.
End off and Weave threads

One of my sons and one of my daughters has dreads so I was going to make them some of these for Christmas anyway, so I will join you.  I also have a pattern that I found somewhere.  Let me see.  Ok, here it is http://www.planetshoup.com/easy/crochet/tamrasta.shtml  I will look at the patterns tomorrow and see which one I want to make.  In the mean time, I love the one that RudOne has done.  Might try them all and see which one I like best.  Ha.

I bought my last hemp twine and some hemp/cotton yarn at hemptraders.com.  Made a tam tonight using some of the hemp yarn and I like it a lot.

here is a picture of the tam with the hemp yarn in it


Here is a picture of the tam I made using a different pattern





I keep catching my girl early in the morning before school to take the pictures and she does not appreciate it.  Anyway, this pattern came from here  http://www.planetshoup.com/easy/crochet/tamrasta.shtml

I am currently doing another pattern that I think I like a lot.

I'm making one right now, without using a pattern because I've never crocheted anything before EVER (so I don't know how to read the patterns yet). I just looked up what a double stitch thingy is and started working on the hat.
We'll see how it goes, I think I made too few increases the first couple of rows though. I might have to start all over again if it ends up looking horrible.
