Every now and then I get the urge to wear a nice, warm scarf that’s packed full of beautiful colours and textures to brighten up the gloomy, cold days!
The Snood You’ll Love!
In my latest Fresh Inspiration Knitting Vol.2, there’s my crochet pattern called, Pebble Snood (image above). Thank you so much to wonderful Nicky the talented crochet designer who helped me to make this snood! This crochet snood was inspired by the hazy colours of a winter garden, where different colours of moss grow on the stones covered in frost. It is made of 12 different colours combined in the attractive crochet motifs that are guaranteed to brighten up the dark, cold season as much as the snood will keep your neck nice and cosy. I am sure you will get lots of compliments and be so proud of wearing it!
Each hexagon has pair of bobbles on the 6 corners making this snood design particularly interesting and elegant. The pattern calls for Green Mountain Spinnery’s Mountain Mohair (worsted weight; 100% North American Fibre, 30% Yearling Mohair, 70% Wool; 128m [140yds] per 58g [2oz] skein).
It is a single-ply yarn and works superbly well in crochet. It’s lofty, hazy and soft – one of the best mohair yarns I knitted with. And to make it even better, there are so many colours available!
Joining Colourful Textured Crochet Motif As You Make It
The Pebble Snood is made of crocheted hexagon motifs. They are joined as you crochet, so you can see the snood grow, which I find more satisfying. Different combinations of coloured discs are made first, then the last 2 rows, which are worked in light grey, are crocheted.
Here is a YouTube tutorial I made previously on how to join crochet squares as you crochet.
There are various ways in which you can make your Pebble Snood a one of a kind design for yourself. Puff stitch, to make the textured bobbles, can be elaborated by adding a couple more yarn-overs to make the bobble even more raised.
Or you could reverse the allocation of the colours and use grey as the disc and different colours for the outer side of the hexagon. If you only have a limited amount of yarns, why not just make a shorter version?
