The Stockholm Snood was born because Joe asked for a snood for Christmas and was quite specific about colour, size and stitch style; that comes from being a designer! Anyway, this was the result! Apologies for the ‘moody’ face only he refused to model for me and it’s my face! I can’t help it!!!
I am not a pattern writer but I think this is quite straight forward and can’t see any problems! Do let me know if you do! And if you happen to like it enough to make it then I would love to see the results!
I used 260g of King Cole Moorland Aran, shade 374 which is a denim blue with a grey and cream slub
From a 400g ball this represents 510m, the yarn is 75% acrylic/ 25% wool
5mm circular needle
Really you could use any yarn and gauge but would need to calculate your tension/sizing. The snood has a circumference of 75cm and I worked a length of 75cm (not including ribbed edge)
The pattern is worked in the round firstly making a tube in waffle stitch and finishing the top with the rib, after which you pick up and complete the rib at the bottom. This means that there really is no top/bottom and the garment can be worn single or double, as a snood or a cowl and was designed for a Swedish winter!
Worked over 4 stitches in the round
R1 and 2 (K1, P2 ) repeat to end
R2 and 3 Knit
Cast on 128 sts (I prefer long tail method), use marker to denote beginning/end of each round
Work in waffle stitch until of desired length- I did about 75cm ending with R4
Work one round purl
*Now work in K2,P2 rib for 5 rounds
Next round, (K2, P2together) repeat all round
Now work K2, P1 rib for 5 rounds
Bind off and sew in end so that invisible
To complete, turn work upside down, pick up and knit 128 sts then work one row purl
Now complete rib from * to match other end.
That’s it! Easy peasy!
