Snood cowl keeps neck cosy
I love snoods (AKA cowls) and I decided to knit one with a twist in it, so that there would be a lovely curved edge visible.
Don’t knit? Get in touch and I can make one for you!
It can be worn with twisty bits at the front,
or at the back.

The pattern is here, it’s very quick and easy to make.
Yarn: Rowan cocoon (here in ‘Polar’)
Needles: 6.5 and 8 mm circular knitting needles (if you only have 8 mm that is fine too!) and a large sewing needle for weaving in ends.
Cast on 72 stitches using the 6.5 mm needles (if you have them, just use the 8 mm needles if not.)
Before you continue in the round, take hold of the first few cast-on stitches:
and turn them around once, so that they twist around the needle. It doesn’t matter which way you turn them.
Then place a stitch marker at the beginning of the round and switch to the 8 mm needles.
Row 1: *k2, p2* repeat between *s for the whole round.
Row 2: same as row 1.
Row 3: *p2, k2* repeat between *s for the whole round.
Row 4: same as row 3.
You should find that the stitches are stacked in sets of four knits and four purled like this:
k k p p
k k p p
p p k k
p p k k
so that the pattern is like a checkerboard all the way round.
Keep repeating rows 1-4 until you have 36 rows.
Switch back to the 6.5 mm needles if you have some and cast off.
Put on your lovely new snood and feel very happy!
I would love to hear from you if you make this! Drop me a line.
