So tomorrow is my sister in laws birthday and I wanted to make her something special.
She has just started a new job in a new school as a primary teacher and I wanted to make her something to keep her warm while she is on play ground duties.
A scarf was too obvious. So a snood it was!
First things first though .... a trip to a yarn shop to choose a warm but funky kind of wool.
Aero .... has anyone seen it before. It is delightful. Uber Funky. It reminds me of a surf shop kind of yarn. Chunky, practical, vibrant and cool. 20% wool to 80% acrylic.
As for the snood here's how you do it .....
Get chunky wool and a 9mm hook.
In UK terms ; ch 10 and then do as many rows as you need in trebles. I chose trebles so there was a bit of give in the snood. Then join with a row of double stitches.
Here is the finished product ......
Practical beyond belief. You can have it pulled up right to you nose and ears with it still tucked in your coat.
It is so easy!!! Defiantly something to do for an outdoors person. Perfect for a man as well ( we all know they are hard to make for).
I'll let you know if she likes it!
