The same person who requested the dread hat large enough to fit his head but snug enough to not fall off with their weight also wanted a standard fitting beanie with a hole in the back for the dreads to come through. Poor guy hadn’t been able to wear a normal beanie since he got dreads years ago, how sad right?
Naturally I told him that I could make him just what he wanted and when I dropped it off to him this past weekend it took no more than a few minutes’ wear before he immediately requested another in black, charcoal and brown.
Both will be joining the dreadhead while he travels during the holidays and other custom orders are in queue! If you know someone who is looking far and wide for beanies specifically made for those with dreads, you know where to find them 😉 Perhaps I’ll write up a pattern so that you can create your own…any interest?
