DIY: A Warm and Cozy Knitted Snood + Video

...maybe is because I have been in bed {due to my surgery} more than usual, but I have been craving some crafty and easy stitching of knitting project! And since I am not a super talented a snood is a great way to feel great, do something creative but keep it super simple... plus is the perfect project for those Sunday football marathon that my kids and my husband has been torturing me with!!

Here is a step by step:
You’ll need:
* 10mm straight needles,
* 2 Skeins Rowan 100% Merino ‘Big wool‘ (100g, 87 yds per skein) or any similar alternative,
* Knitter’s needle or tapestry needle.

1. Cast on 24 stitches.

2. Ribbing stitch: knit, yarn over, purl, knit yarn over, purl.... Continue. Turn and repeat.

3. Cast off and stitch ends together. To cast off watch the video below or go {here} for another video tutorial.

...and voila you have a fabulous, handmade snood! It should take aprox 3-5 hs.

It's the perfect color! I'm jealous of your patience, I know how to knit but I haven't done it in years.

Awww hope you're recovering well. This is a really pretty scarf. I love the color and the thick ribs. Rest up!

beautiful snood .... I didn't know these things had a name. I used to knit and really enjoy it, maybe I'll dig out my needles someday soon. Hope you are recovering. You are using your time wisely.

Lovely scarf! I have a heck of a time keeping the tension right and always wind up not being able to get my needles through. I do have one of those ring looms though. Perhaps finding one that fits over my head and doing it that way... hmmm... :D

But. Not a snood. As a medieval reenactor I own several snoods. I googled "snood" and saw a lot of the real thing and a lot of tube style scarves being called snoods. Here's a snood: http://www.snoods.com/metco.html You can also look it up at dictionary.com

Would there be enough yarn left from the 2 skeins to make a bow detail? Thank you! Love your tutorial!
