I have been looking all over for a nice tutorial on how to crochet dreads. Anyone have any good sites?


Thank you!

There are several different styles. Do you like the ones with the fiberfill in them or like the flat ones? I can post a tut on the stuffed dreads if peeps would be interested.

I've been looking for this as well! I did a google search and came up with this site:

http://cornrows.co.uk/howto/crochetlocs.html

it's for real locks but it could work for synths as well.

I just posted the tutorial for the crocheted dreads. You can stuff them or not, just personal preference. It's in tutorials in the roving and wool section. :i12:

That is really cool, but not what I am looking for >_< I should have been more clear, I meant a tutorial on how to crochet synth dreads, to get that "natural" tangle look.

I have a youtube video of how I crochet dreads. I use the same method for both real hair and synth.

I just replaced the pics in the crochet tutorial for those that were interested. :)

It's in the wool and roving tutorial section.

I have just tidied this thread a bit so it better fits in with this section, rather than moving it out when there are some relevant links. Please don't be upset or offended if I have removed or edited your comment to sort the thread out

Since this has come up a lot recently, thought I would add to the Thread links to two more great Tutes for crochet dreads that I don't think are in the Tutes section already (Merrys & Blacksunshines);

For knotty natural crochet dreads

For soft wavy crochet dreads
