    >Thank you for the pattern. I work with a woman who has lovely long dreads and I’d like to make one for her as a surprise. And I have a daughter…..it’s a good thing I like to crochet.

  2. catsmum says:

    >Donna lee these wraps are so simple and so addictive that I should’ve called ’em Pringles because you just can’t stop at one LOL

  3. >I shall comment and then dutifully copy and print. This could be a good Christmas gift! Yay for Nadie!!!

  4. Carol says:

    >Fabulous! Thank you for sharing the pattern, my step-daughter would love this.

  5. DreamWoven says:

    >This is a lovely design :)one question though… since it is 100% cotton, i’ve always found that it eventually will stretch (and lose shape)… have you found this with the cotton you are using?

  6. catsmum says:

    >I haven’t used the Jaipur brfore so couldn’t say, but stretchng seems to be less of an issue with crochet …and basically I figure these are so quick to make that I’m not worried [ or move the button a bit ? ]Alternatively one could make ties instead

  7. Tanya Brown says:

    >Nadie, eh? If I make this, will I become timelessly, hauntingly beautiful like a mosaic unearthed at Pompeii?

  8. Jess says:

    >This is a beautiful pattern, but I am a little confused by the first row… 5 hdc, 47 dc, 5 hdc, could you elaborate?Thanks 🙂

  9. catsmum says:

    >hi Jess – not sure what you need to know basically you get the shaping by doing a bunch of sc at the start of each row, followed by the 5 half double crochet then in the middle are the dcs then it narrows down again by using the hdcs and back to the sc again. Is it that hdc is a stitch that you are not familiar with ? You start the same as for a dc – yarn around hook and pull up a loop – but now that you have the three loops on the hook instead of taking two moves to get them off again, you do it in one move : yarn around hook and pull through all three loops at the same time.

  10. Jess says:

    >I figured it out..thanks…I’m going to attempt to make it with some cashmere yarn I had laying around. I will try to post pictures of it finished and include a link to your blog if you would like to take a look. Thanks again 🙂
