Scarves are like buses…

You limp on without one for ages, and then two come along at once!

I had so much fun making my new snood a few weeks ago, that within a few days I’d started on a second one. I had two more balls of my Kingcraig merino and cashmere left, so I decided to try making a smarter, more understated item which I could wear for work.

It’s another Erika Knight stitch, unsurprisingly – it’s called fantail stitch and it crocheted up really quickly. The whole item was completed in just two days!

To give the snood a feature, I used some beautiful, pearlised cotton viscose by Drops Design every 16 lines. I’ve got quite a lot of this left over from the crochet snowflakes project, and I am totally in love with all of the colours. This was a simple, effective way of bringing out the detail of the stitch. Hopefully, the occasional shimmery row of shells gives the finished piece a bit of a ‘luxe’ look. 


So now I’ve got not one, but two snoods that I can wear. Lucky me – two lovely, warm and completely different crocheted accessories from one batch of wool!DSC_0026 (2)
