Crappy backview shot, since I've got no one to take a picture of the back of my head... lol

Side shot

This shows off the colour of the yarn better

Detail of stitch

This is a gift fot a friend who goes to renn faires regularly. Since most of her garb is muted shades of blue, I decided to make her a snood to go with it. Yarn is Simply Soft in "Country Blue".

Very easy pattern (and my first attempt at writing out a pattern that someone else can follow!)

On US size 6 circular or DPNs, cast on 72 stitches.
Rows 1-3 are k1p1 rib
Row 4: k9, yo, k9, yo, repeat til end of row
Row 5: knit
Row 6: k10, yo, k10, yo, repeat til end of row
Row 7: knit
Row 8: k11, yo, k11, yo, repeat til end of row
Row 9: knit
You will have 96 stitches on your needles.
Fishnet Lace pattern: Row 10 and all even rows: k2tog, yo, til end of round ending with a yo
Row 11 and all odd rows: Knit
Work in fishnet lace until lace portion is 11 inches ending in an odd row (all knit)
Then:
k2tog all the way around (you will have 48 stitches)
Repeat this round until you have 6 stitches. Bind off.
Weave in ends.

Thanks for looking!

So cool!  I am in love!
It's hard to find a snood pattern that's knit, so thanks for writing up the pattern.  I'm an Ren Faire gal, with an obsession for snoods, so this is going on my to-knit list.
Do you know how much yarn it took?

That is SO cool! I have a friend who lives for the annual ren fairs - this is definitely going to be her Christmas gift (too late for this year's faire, which ends soon!)

Thanks so much for figuring out and sharing a pattern!

It took a little over half a skein of the Simply Soft. Probably about 3.5 oz of worsted weight yarn.

I honestly thought this was crochet, 'cause of the open work and that I haven't seen many snood knit patterns. Thanks for the pattern! I love the hat, I'll have to make one of these.

It isn't too hard to keep on because the ribbed part is stretchy, but I'd recommend using pins to secure it just in case. Smiley

I'd love to see this with bigger needles and thinner yarn. Maybe a cotton!

I had to click on this... I didn't know what a snood was! This is so pretty... I ought to make myself one, for those bad hair days! Thanks for providing the pattern, I might just have to make one of these! Cheesy

How did I miss this? RenFaire aside, snoods are good for keeping the hair off the neck and in my never-very-humble-opinion look good. Thank you for sharing your pattern. I'm thinking that lone skein of TLC Cotton Plus in Spruce I have...
