Was wondering if anyone out there knew where I could get a pattern for a snood?  Need more for my ultra-nerd Ren Faire garb...

I've looked for something similar for that exact purpose. What I did was work off a beret type pattern. Start with a ring, and then increase every round until it fit the back of my head.  Then I didn't increase and continued that way until  I thought it would hold my hair (not too much with my hair). Then I decreased quite dramatically around an elastic band.  It stays very well when normally moving, but I tried a spin (I have to get some air under my petticoats!) and it flew right off. I don't know if bobbypins would help, or a wider band around the elastic. I'd like to hear about it if you try it.

2/18/12 - I no longer have the directions for wrapped pens, I lost them several years ago. To obtain them for yourself, do like I did, contact DMC threads directly and ask for them.

Thanks!  I'm going to try a few of those.  A girl can never have too many snoods... Wink
