Beginner Snood Knit Pattern
This snood knitting pattern is a great way to protect both your head and neck on a cold winter day.
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."
