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.
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
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)
Purl row, increasing at each end with Pfb
Repeat between *’s 17 times
Knit Row, decreasing at each end with a k2tog (22 stitches)
Knit Row, decreasing at each end with 2 k2togs(18 stitches)
Knit Row, decreasing at each end with 2 k2togs(14 stitches)
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.
