A Snood by Any Other Name – Free Pattern

I’m so excited to post my first pattern and to celebrate it’s free!  I’ve had a lot of people asking me if I had a pattern for this snood.  So I decided to put pen to paper and write it up. This is my first attempt at writing a pattern, so if you find any mistakes, please let me know.

  1. Thank you very much! I am practising my crochet since my mum showed me how to do it again the other week. I haven’t done any since I was a child. I’m going to start with a few simple things but this will be the first on my list if I manage to improve. Will definitely let you know how it goes but you may have to wait a while!

  2. You had me at Snood 😉
