"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

The Beginner Snood Knit Pattern might be one of the most versatile pieces you ever make. This free knit snood pattern is essentially a cowl-scarf combination that can be worn around your neck or over your head to provide the maximum amount of warmth and protection on the coldest of days.
This free knitting pattern is completely beginner-friendly and it's a great way to practice knitting in the round and seed stitch. The super bulky warm ensures ultimate comfort and the grey marble color is versatile enough to work with any items currently in your wardrobe. When it comes to cold weather accessories, it doesn't get much better than this classic snood knit pattern.
From the designer: "I wanted this to essentially be a snood/cowl hybrid, so you could wear it over your head as a hood if you're not much of a hat-wearer, or leave it bunched up on your neck for some extra warmth there. All you need to achieve that effect is to make an extra-tall cowl, so that's what I did! The seed stitch adds some intrigue, but this would work just as well with any other non-curling stitch pattern, like basketweave or garter."

This pattern looks more difficult than it actually is. One of the good things about this snood is that you can wear it draped around your neck and it adds extra warmth. Then you can wear it as a hood outside. Sometimes you just need that extra layer. It will knit up fast and will be used quite often. And you can make some for friends. It will make a good charity item as well. Thank you.

I am not a beginner, but I love patterns targeted toward beginning knitters because more difficult patterns frighten me. I know that probably sounds silly. I have been knitting off and on for more than twenty years. Guess that makes me an advanced beginner? Love this pattern. Looks easy but challenging enough.

This pattern couldn't be easier - two rows - and what a great way to practice a lovely stitch, if you're a beginner. Wool Ease is a very soft and easy yarn to work with, too, and comes in a variety of colors. This pattern is a winner!

I love this! I've never tried a snood before, but I love the shape and texture. I think I'll have to try this one soon.

This pattern looks complex, but it's really very easy. Plus it's very versatile. I think I'm going to try this pattern with some ribbed edges to add some variety to it.
