My husband laughs at the word. It’s such an unflattering word for such a pretty hair accessory. He asked why I was making something which hangs over a turkey’s beak. Anyway…If you’d like to learn a little (and I mean a little) about the history of snoods, here’s the wiki page.
My Mum mentioned one time that I should try making a snood. I had thought about it and decided it was high time I tried. It wasn’t as hard as I thought, but it’s definitely not a project for beginners. I went off of this pattern, but made mine shorter so that it did not look like a nurse’s bonnet. I made mine out of light blue cotton, which worked up well and is comfortable. I inserted an elastic band and covered it with a white ribbon.
What do you think?
