HI!
This is my first post.  I don't know how to crochet yet, but I am gearing up to learn because whenever I knit on the metro guys with dreads ask me to make caps for them.  I checked out a few dread caps and they all appear to be crocheted, so I was wondering if anyone had a pattern for that?  Also, I've had several requests for skull caps, which I think would be easier to crochet than kinit, so I'm looking for a pattern for those also. 
thanks!

The Groovy Crochet website (a web archive site) has a lot of patterns from the 60's & 70's including skull caps. Several of the caps are listed under poncho patterns as well since they come as a set:

If you have trouble getting to it, you can also try Stargazer's Crochet Links:

Good luck!

There is a quick + easy skull cap in better homes and garden's Simpliy Creative Crochet mag. you can get it at a book store or micheals or Jo-anns. its all single crochet except the last row which is reverse single crochet, which I cant figure out if my life depended on it. but to get to the last row it only took me 2 days, and you can furgure out the reverse single crochet Smiley

I made that one for Jerome by knitting... but I lost the pattern. I can prolly talk you through it if you need to though. you just cast on enough to fit around the head... and then you increase every other stitch I think....  ( I did it on 4 needles)... I know I worked the first inch in a welted rib... I forget what I did next. I'll have to dig up some notes. I know Iwrote some notes on it when I realized I lost the pattern.
