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*.
