It’s basically a rectangle of garter stitch with the stitches of every fourth row elongated; the pattern said to ‘pull the stitches out to about an inch in length’ but in the interests of consistency I worked *k1, yo x3* to last stitch, k1 and then dropped the yarnovers on the next row. To get the curved shape you pick up and knit one stitch for every two rows up the side and then bind off (I actually picked up and purled the second lot so the two sides matched). It took 44g of Colinette Giotto, knitted on 4mm needles. I’m not usually a fan of ribbon yarns but I used my ChiaoGoos which are lovely and smooth and it knitted up like a dream.
I think it looks rather fabulous, and almost wish I had long enough hair to wear one myself (though I know that I am really much, much happier when my hair is short). S, on the other hand, has very long hair which is perfect for snoods, so I hope she likes wearing this one.
