Easy Chunky Eyelet Snood

Knitted in Rowan Cocoon, shown in Clay #825

This easy eyelet snood is chunky and cosy, perfect for the cold days of Winter.  It is easy and enjoyable to work with it’s simple rhythm that results in an attractive fabric.  The stitch is great for those beginning to experiment with lace stitches, as it’s easy to get to grips with and grows quickly too.  Yet, it’s not too simple that it would prove boring for those that have knitted for a long time.  I am an experienced knitter and this is one of my favourite stitch patters.   It is worked in the round so that there is no sewing up at the end, just the ends of the yarn to sew in, and it can be made bigger or smaller in height by working more or less repeats of the pattern, depending on the knitter’s preference.

Materials used:

  • 2 balls of Rowan Cocoon
