It has been a while since I have posted a craft project. These past few months I have been engrossed in digitalizing my Grandmother old slide collection. The weather has also held out until a few weeks ago prompting me to get my sunshine in while it lasts. Now that the grey, snowy days have arrived I am much more inclined to dig out my crochet hooks and get to work.
This project evolved out of trying to use up some of my old yarn and stocking up on some cozy wardrobe accessories. It took me only about an hour to crochet this using bulky yarn and a large crochet hook. I imagine that this would be a great beginners project. I combined two simple patterns: 1) a rope pattern using double crochet and a chain stitch 2) a single crochet sequence.
- 16 mm (U.S. Q) Crochet Hook
- Yarn, bulky (5) weight
Chain 33 (add or remove a couple of ch depending on how wide you want your snood to be)
- Row 1: dc 1 in the 4th ch sp. ch 1. dc 1 in the next ch sp. *skip 1 ch sp. dc 1 in the next ch sp. ch 1. dc 1 in the next ch sp.* Repeat until you reach the end of the row. dc 1 in the last ch sp of the row.
- Row 2: ch 3. *dc 1 in the first ch sp (between the two dc below). ch 1. dc 1 in the same sp as the last dc.* Repeat until you reach the end of the row. dc 1 in the final sp.
- Row 3 – 7: Repeat of row 2.
- Row 8 – 11: Ch 1. Sc 1 in each sp.
- Row 12: Repeat of row 1.

- Row 24: Repeat of row 1.
- Row 25 – 31: Repeat of row 2.

Fasten off the end, and tuck in the yarn ends.
