This is my version of the dread locks from the book, Knit 2 Together: Patterns and Stories for Serious Knitting Fun by Tracey Ullman, Mel Clark and Eric Axene. Check out this book! It is funny, has some great patterns, and some great knitting tips.
I used a cotton blend yarn in a brunette color and assorted wooden beads.The beads are strung on the yarn and knitted into a one stitch I cord. The strands are attached to a brown elastic hair band. It's so cool to have beaded braids you can wear anytime you feel like it. I can't wait to see what Purl Too does with this one!
