The Lesser Plaited Snood

I've wanted a snood, cowl or neck warmy tube thing for a while now. When I saw a plaited snood in Inside Crochet I knew I'd found just the design to get me whipping one up. 

All I had to do was work three strips up on a chunky 10mm hook. Once they were all finished it was down to the first hard part of pinning, plaiting and then sewing all the strips together in a random way.

The next hard part was trying to take a picture of me wearing the golden neck tube.


Each time my finger clicked down on my camera two little deevils popped up on my shoulders.


So please forgive the up the nostril shot. This is the only picture where you can actually see what I'm trying to show you.  

I'm also trying to get my head around my new do. I love having a falling forward 60's bob most of all. When I idly asked my hairdresser for a slight change it became what we've renamed the mushroom head. Having a long neck and short hair balanced on the top makes having a plaited snood to fill in the gap inbetween more of a necessity.  I also adore the golden yellow shade of that yarn*.

  1. Three cheeky faces! Your snood is lovely - funnily I have just finished crocheting another one in Big Wool too. Mines very basic though as are my crochet skills. Karen xx

  4. What a lovely colour, contrasts beautifully with your hair colour.
    I crocheted a cowl for myself recently with a 12mm hook, feel ever so proud wearing something I made myself!

  5. It's simply gorgeous Lisa, I too adore that colour and your hair looks just spiffy. I haven't had my hair cut for about 6 months, I often just snip away when I think I'm getting split ends...my mad curls allow me to get away with this. Alice has super smooth and silky hair like yours and I hope one day she has a short sharp bob, I think its stylish and sophisticated.
    ps. Love your girlies sense of humour and thanks so much for your comment on my recent post xox P

  10. Great cowl and lovely colour! It looks warm and cosy. Love the fun photos and your haircut looks very stylish. I,m trying to convince myself to go and get my hair cut short. Its shoulder length at the moment. Its a difficult decision.

    Keep well

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
