Knitted Tape Snood

Knitted Tape Snood

I’m on a bit of a snood making frenzy at the moment.  I’ve decided they’re one of the best things I can use to keep my hair out of my face, that won’t end in a headache.

Here is one I whipped up over the weekend.

bamribsnood2 Made with Spotlight’s Yarn Bee Bamboo ribbon yarn in “Blue Java” colourway.  It’s light, drapey and very comfortable.

Using a worsted weight yarn (or a tape/chain yarn), 6mm needles and a 5mm crochet hook.

Here’s the pattern:-

Cast on 20 stitches using long tail cast on
Purl row
Knit row, wrapping yarn around needle twice before pulling back through (all knit rows will be knit in this way)
Purl row, increasing at each end with Pbf, and allowing wrapped stitches to elongate (all purl rows will allow stitches to elongate)
Knit row
Purl row, increasing at each end with Pfb
*Knit row
Purl row*
Repeat between *’s 17 times
Knit Row, decreasing at each end with a k2tog (22 stitches)
Purl row
Knit Row, decreasing at each end with 2 k2togs(18 stitches)
Purl row
Knit Row, decreasing at each end with 2 k2togs(14 stitches)
Purl row
Knit Row, decreasing at each end with 2 k2togs(10 stitches)
Bind off using crochet bind off.

Continuing with the crochet, add a round of single crochet around the entire piece, being careful not to draw it in too much (I did 2 sc’s per knit row around the top, and 1 around the base).  Joining with a slip stitch, cut yarn and weave in.

Figure out the points that will end just behind the tops of your ears and mark on both sides.  With the right side out, work fanfare stitch row starting at one mark, then working over the top of the piece to the other mark. Continuing on, holding some hat elastic, work single crochet around base catching the elastic within the stitch around base to the first mark.  Then work second row of fanfare stitch back around top of snood.  Cut yarn and weave in end.

Adjust elastic as needed and tie off both ends.

Enjoy!

    1. You can use this pattern with plain yarn as well. I’m about to do one, actually, for winter. You would need to use a DK (8ply) or Worsted/Aran (10ply) weight, though.

  1. Thank You for sharinf this pattern , I have been looking for a snood pattern for a whlie now , I too get headaches from other hair accessories .

  2. Hi! I’m in a huge snood phase at the moment, and I came across this pattern, having the perfect yarn in mind that I know is lurking in one of my many yarn bins. I do have a quick question about the pattern. At the beginning where it says:

    Knit row, wrapping yarn around needle twice before pulling back through (all knit rows will be knit in this way)

    What do you mean? Are you trying to say to add a stitch, like YO (yarn over) or something else??? If you mean something else, could you please explain? I’m confused on that part!

    Also, on the purl row where you increase each end, is it just the end, or do you mean both ends, as in the first and last stitch of that row?

    Also, when you begin decreasing stitches, do you knit the knit rows as you said to in the beginning or just normally?

    Please and thank you!

  3. I’m trying to find a nice snood pattern that doesn’t show any of the hair (as in no huge holes/net look) that also doesn’t require crochet (I don’t know how!)…any ideas?

    1. That’s a tough one. You could, essentially knit a big oval shape and gather it up around the edge, but it wont have the same drape.

  4. Hello there I am so delighted I found your blog page, I really found you by mistake, while I was researching for something else,
    Regardless I am here now and would just like to say many thanks for a remarkable post and a all round enjoyable blog.Please do keep up the excellent work.
