Instructions

  1. How to make a dreadlock / fall. Crochet Synthetic Dreads - Step 1 1

    Take your back combed dread and crochet hook.

    Small crochet hooks are better, I use a 1mm or smaller.

  2. How to make a dreadlock / fall. Crochet Synthetic Dreads - Step 2 2

    Put your crochet hook in the dread and snag a small section of hair.

  3. How to make a dreadlock / fall. Crochet Synthetic Dreads - Step 3 3

    Keep that first loop of hair on your hook and put it back into the dread, snagging another small section of hair.

  4. How to make a dreadlock / fall. Crochet Synthetic Dreads - Step 4 4

    Pull that second loop through the first loop, leaving you with one loop of hair again on the hook.

  5. How to make a dreadlock / fall. Crochet Synthetic Dreads - Step 5 5

    Repeat this process down the dread, no need to be neat!
    Just snag parts randomly around one side of the dread.




  6. How to make a dreadlock / fall. Crochet Synthetic Dreads - Step 6 6

    When you reach near the end of the dread, just pull the final loop loose.

  7. How to make a dreadlock / fall. Crochet Synthetic Dreads - Step 7 7

    Repeat the process of the other side of the dread, pulling in the puffy parts of the dread.

  8. How to make a dreadlock / fall. Crochet Synthetic Dreads - Step 8 8

    Semi-seal the dread by hanging them up outside or other a bath/sink. And pour boiling water over them.

    Leave to dry :)
