Cuddle up into this soft and snuggly snood on cold winter days. Knitted in a deliciously soft yarn and using bright coloured stripes, it will be sure to cheer up even the most dull day. Large needles and an easy 2-row pattern make it quick and easy to complete, even for the novice knitter.
Width: 50 cm (20 in) Length: 55 cm (22 in)
• 5 x 50 g balls of Patons Pompero Aran weight yarn (shade 00070 Lime)
• 4 x 50 g balls of Patons Pompero Aran weight yarn (shade 00032 Ruby)
• Pair of 5 mm (UK 6/US 8) needles
13 sts = 10 cm (4 in) in width using 5 mm (UK 6/US 8) needles
Note: When working the pattern, be careful not to drop stitches since the lacy patterning makes it very difficult to pick them up
Using 5 mm (UK 6/US 8) needles and Lime, cast on 73 sts. Work 4 rows in garter stitch.
Now commence pattern as follows:
Row 1 (RS): K1, (yfwd, sl 1, k2togtbl, psso, yfwd, k next st 1 row below st on needle, letting st above drop off needle in the usual way) to last 4 sts, yfwd, sl 1, k2togtbl, psso, yfwd, kl.
Row 2: K1, Purl to last st, k1. These 2 rows form the pattern and are repeated throughout.
Work 5 cm (2 in) in Lime, join in Ruby, work
5 cm (2 in) in Ruby.
Continue working in stripes of Lime and Ruby as above until you have 6 Lime stripes and 5 Ruby stripes. Do not break off and join in yarn but take it up the side of the work catching it in as you work. Work should now measure approx 55 cm (22 in) and you will end on a Row 2 of a Lime stripe. Work 4 rows garter stitch in Lime, then cast off.
to make up
Work in all ends neatly. Sew seam of snood, matching stripes carefully as you do so.
