Chunky Knit Snood

I'm getting the hang of this knitting thing.
This is an chunky knit Snood (Scarf + Hood) or Cowl.
I used a thick merino wool yarn for this. And a simple pattern of course, just knit 1, purl 1, and repeat.
 Here's Castle, modelling it. It's for a bigger person, so imagine it on one with a thicker neck and bigger shoulders.
The thick yarn, simple pattern, and the small in nature project compounded to a very quick creation, which makes a great last minute Christmas gift.

P.S. Have you ever seen a watermelon like this?
Actually, I'm not even sure if it's a watermelon. What do you think it is? We found it at the Granville Island Market.


  1. Its a gourd of somekind. I found this link about how to do it.

    They look wonderful

  2. Love that scarf. How many did you cast on to make it?

  3. Hi Sue, I don't remember how many it was, I did it by eye, when it got to the width I wanted I stopped. The only thing is that it needs to be an odd number for is pattern to work.
