Snood

Yarns and hooks: Almost any kind of yarn or crochet thread will work for this pattern. For a finer texture, use crochet cotton, knit-cro-sheen, or pearl cotton, with a "3" or "B" size crochet hook. Heavier yarns (wool, acrylic, and blends) yield a lovely, rough texture. Use a "G" sized hook with
heavier yarns.

Finished size: Approximately 17" in diameter. Comes to about the nape of the neck when worn; for a longer snood, repeat Row 15 until desired diameter is achieved.
