Dread Holder

Ravelry made me take down my patterns in the format I had originally posted them.

So now I'm moving them here!

This is for my Dread Holder.

Materials:
Worsted weight yarn.  Wool is the stretchiest, but any yarn will do.
J (6mm) hook
darning needle

Pattern:
Ch until it’s big enough for your head. I made about 70 for wool, 74 for acrylic, and 72 for cotton. Make sure you have an even number. Join in a loop, being careful not to twist.

ch 4 *Dc, ch1, skip next st* all the way around. sl st in top of ch 4 to join in round.

With each subsequent row, ch 4 *dc around next ch1, ch1* all the way around. st st in top of ch4 to join.

And that's it!  I like mine best 7-8 rows wide, but feel free to tweak as you see fit.

  2. I'm going to have some skin cancer removed next week, from my forehead and along the hair line (about 4 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide) and have been looking for decent patterns like this to cover the scars. Thanks!

  3. I'm a lil confused by the line "With each subsequent row, ch 4 *dc around next ch1, ch1* all the way around. st st in top of ch4 to join." - Do you mean that I 'dc, ch1' all the way around til I get to the beginning again?
