The kids snood (or cowl or tube scarf as they are otherewise known) is starting to hit the streets and the shops. It’s perfect for cosying up the lttle one as the journey to school gets colder, and so practical – no fastenings or bits flapping around and so easy to take on and off.
Hats, scarves and all manner of accessories are now beginning to appear everywhere and I’ve noticed that the seasonal renewed enthusiasm for knitting and crocheting woolies is starting to build momentum, so I thought it would be a good time to post this. I’ve been meaning to for a while now but somehow it didn’t seem right when it was 21 degrees, even though I knew there would be people shivering on the other side of the world.
Anyway, here it is….. the junior version of my oh-so-basic crocheted snood, which I featured on my blog last year with every intention of providing a pattern. The adult version has been very popular and I’ve had a good few requests for the version for little ones that I pictured in the original post. It is crocheted in the latest chunky style and knitted in a circle so there are no seams to sew up et the end. Super quick and easy to make and great for beginners. Can be made up in as little as just one evening.
..And here’s an idea for something a little bit more quirky. Fluoro accessories are super-trending this season. Why not make it up in fluorescent yarn – there are some great neon-yarn colours out there at the moment, and let’s face it – no one can carry off these brights better than our little ones.
The pattern may be adjusted for variations in width and depth and best of all it’s still freeeeee…
Here it is…….
