Woodland Nightfall Knit Snood
For all the elegance and grace of a headscarf with the cozy warmth of a cowl, knit this Woodland Nightfall Knit Snood. The deep purple color is gorgeously regal, and the cabling gives this snood pattern a deceptively intricate appearance. Knit in super bulky yarn, you'll never have to worry about the winter cold chilling your neck with this knit snood. When paired with a cozy knit sweater, a winter jacket, and some knit boot cuffs, you'll be well equipped to take on the cold even as the warmth of the sun disappears in the evening.
