I used a 2.35mm hook with pearl #5 yarn.
Here's a few other snood patterns I discovered in my snood adventures.
- I came across this snood in a Ravelry discussion that links to the pattern on the Way Back Machine, I haven't tried this snood yet, it is worked in the round.
- A half snood pattern I have yet to try, 1945 Loop-The-Loop Snood, another Way Back Machine find.
- I tried this vintage snood pattern, it showed promise but didn't turn out right. Perhaps I read the pattern wrong.
I learnt a lot making snoods.
I also learnt that adding a metallic thread changes the drape, adding beads takes a lot of time and there are several different ways to finish the snood for drawstring and elastic.
Although it takes longer to make and uses more yarn I prefer the method that accommodates both a ribbon drawstring and elastic.
