Adult size snood knitted in Crucci Terra Firma yarn

Here is the adult version of the Snuggly Snood I made for my daughter a few weeks ago. 

It's also made using the new Crucci Terra Firma bulky yarn. It's 100% New Zealand wool and super warm and cosy against the winter winds.

I have again used the recommended 20mm needles to get a more defined stitch result for this adult sized snood. 

You will need two 200g hanks to complete this project.

First wined the two hanks of yarn into two balls.

Adult's Snuggly Snood Pattern

Using 20mm knitting needles, cast on 16 stitches.

Work stocking stitch (1st row knit, 2nd row purl, then repeat) until both hanks have been knitted. Join the hanks at the end of a row. Finish with a purl row, leaving about 2 metres of yarn.

Now work the final row to join the ends and cast off at the same time: These are the pictures I took of the child's size snood, hence less stitches on the needles, but the process is the same.  

Fold the snood right sides together as shown, with the beginning end closest to you. 

Push the right hand needle through the first loop of the cast on end of the knitting. (the diagram shows completed stitches and a stitch in progress)

Then push the needle through the stitch on the left hand needle. Knit the stitch. This knits the two scarf ends together.

Once two stitches have been completed, cast the first stitch off by passing it over the second stitch. 

Repeat the stitches and cast offs until only the last one remains. Pass the loose thread through the loop and pull tight to fasten. 
Use a crochet hook to weave all the lose end in - most darning needles are not big enough to carry this yarn.

Happy knitting xx
