A crochet and knit combination beanie made to hold back a head full of dreads
This is my version of the Combination Summer Hat made specially for a friend. He requested a beanie that would be breathable in the hot Summer and would hold back his growing dreadlocks. How long this will take you depends on your crochet and knitting skills. I edited the version linked here to make it longer just by adding rows. Also, I changed colors every row to make it more interesting.

That is so simple! My biggest problem with having dreads and wearing hats is stretching out the knit from my uber poofy dreads!
