I can't help it, I just have to say it like that.  SNOOOOOOOD.

I made one:

This is a big deal for me, because I've tried this four times before and never could get it right.  I kept trying to crochet one in the round - and I make a LOT of hats that way, and they come out just fine, but for some reason I just could not make a snood in the round without screwing it completely up.

This one's a square. :D   It's just a 16-row square (16x16 rows), on an F hook, size 5 cotton/metallic crochet thread.  Took about four hours.

It's hard to tell in the picture of the finished snood, but you can see it a bit here:  this "natural" colored thread (kind of a newspaper-cream) has a shot of thin gold metallic thread woven through it.

It's all sparkly and stuff.  <3

Yes, this is the snood I wore at the event last weekend with the new Italian.  Red velvet with cream cheese icing!  :)

  1. Wonderful inventive idea to make it square, I too have trouble making them in the round. Great look


Hooray, comments! Be nice to each other, and to me. Or I shall boot your ass and then mail you a dead fish. :D
