I want to make (knit) a snood like this one. All the patterns I find are for larger ones. I do want it to go up on top of my head in order to hold it in place, but the net part I want low and small. Anyone out there know?

Snoods I've seen are croched, not knitted. I don't know if you could get the lacyness (gees, is that a word?) with knit. And crochet snood patterns are all over! Or are you looking for not lacy?
I'm not really clear on what you are asking- the one in the pict would just be like 'half' a snood- and more than likely would need hair pins to hold it in place.
If you want it to go over your head to hold on and then make a pouch to hold your hair... yah, that's just a snood pattern. You need hair to fill out the pouchy part, though. I have long hair so I seem to fill them out fine. 8-)
Hmm, if it was RenFaire season, I would recomend looking at your local ren raire...

I haven't seen any the size you want...have you checked out just the 'bun-covers' anywhere?  I'll bet you can find one and maybe adapt it to suit your tastes.

You could always just try reducing the number of 'diamonds' in the pattern by x amount to get a smaller snood.

Good Luck!

before today i didnt know what a snood was.

suggestion 1) knit with small yarn on big needles
suggestion 2) <probably the better one> cast on how ever many stitches. knit one, return that stitch to the left needle (assuming youre right handed/knit from left to right) knit it again, and again, and again
*kinda stolen from snb nation, the pattern for fishnets*

id play with those two techniques and see what works for you. Im completely dyslexic when it comes to crochet so i understand the desire to make knitting work.

GOOD LUCK.

I am looking for thehalf size (to be held in place with hair-pins). Bun covers are a wee bit too small and I don't have enought hair for a bun. Thanks for your suggestions thus far. I'll keep hoping for more.

in england a snood is a scarf/hood type thing. like a tube, thats big enough to stretch over your head.

we call the thing in the picture bun covers, they just vary in size.

I'm knitting myself a bigger one atm,  I just started it like i would a beanie/hat and then doing eyelet lace for the rest of it, like I would a hat, but a bit longer.  I hope that gives you some help for a knitted one.  If you were wanting a larger one, I have a vintage pdf pattern that I could point you to.  I had a nightmare of a time trying to find a suitable pattern, and just gave up

And a quick FYI for those who said they are all crochet, they can be knitted too, there just isnt quite as much room for variation in the lace.

laminathegreat..... YEAS, YES, YES, that is how I want mine to look. But I don't crochet. Do you (or anyone) know how to convert crochet to knit?

talmina..... If you could send me what info you have that would be fabulous.

I'm sure if I tried to figgure out a modified bun cover with a headband thing I'd be fine but I am back in school and my mind is so occupied with my final show in the spring. Can you believe I have to plan for May now? The good thing is, I'll be incorporating knitting into my paintings. Thank you all for your continued help.
