Super Simple Chunky Snood

Hello, how are you all? I have a little treat for you today. How would you like a free pattern? I thought so :)

OK, so this one came to be after I made the Rug a little over a year ago. The idea was to make a long scarf with the scrap yarn. After a year of having the WIP in my stash, I decided enough was enough, and decided the scarf would be shortened and turned into a snood instead. And this was the result:


I am very pleased with how it turned out, and also with how warm it feels, since it is made of super chunky yarn.




Here's how I usually wear it, adding a shawl pin so I don't have to keep my hand on my chest the whole time!



All right, so the pattern is extremely simple (even though it doesn't look it), and the best thing about it is that you can improvise. Try playing with the possibilities by swapping a row of trebles for one of dcs, making it longer or shorter by adding more rows, or wider or narrower by changing the amount of chain stitches in the beginning chain.

For this particularly snood, I used six colours of super chunky yarn:
Yarn A: Stylecraft Life Super Chunky, Moorlands (2453)
Yarn B: Robin Jukebox Mega Chunky, Elvis (4433)
Yarn C: Stylecraft Life Super Chunky, Cream (2370)
Yarn D: Robin Jukebox Mega Chunky, Lulu (4432)
Yarn E: Sirdar Super Chunky With Wool, Drake (054)
Yarn F: Robin Jukebox Mega Chunky, Supremes (5793)

Crochet hook size: 10mm

UK Terminology: Chain (ch), Slip stitch (sl st), double crochet (dc), treble (tr).

Notes: 
- Standing stitches can be replaced by ch3 for trebles, or [ch1, dc] for double crochets.
- Cut off yarn before each colour change, leaving enough length to weave end in.

Snood Body:
With yarn A, chain 17.
Row 1: tr in 4th chain from hook, tr in next stitch to end, turn. (14 st)
Row 2: change to yarn B, make a standing dc (here's a tutorial in US terminology) in last stitch from previous row, dc in next st to end, turn.
Row 3: change to yarn C, make a standing dc in last st from previous row, dc in next st to end, turn.
Row 4: change to yarn D, make a standing tr (here's a tutorial in US terminology) in last st from previous row, tr in next st to end, turn.

Row 43: repeat row 5.
Row 44-7: repeat row 27
Row 48: repeat row 2.
Row 49: repeat row 27, do NOT fasten off.

Making up:
Choose a wrong side (WS) to your snood, and with it facing upwards, join row 49 and beginning chain with a row of slip stitches. Fasten off.

Edging (make two, one for each edge):
Round 1: with right side (RS) facing upwards, rejoin yarn E anywhere in one edge of the snood, and slip stitch evenly all around, joining with a slip stitch to the 1st slip stitch.
Round 2: ch1, 1 dc in back loop of sl st from previous round, 1 dc in back loop of next sl st around, join with sl st to ch1. Fasten off, weave in all ends, and block.

Have fun making your snood! Let me know if you find any mistakes or anything unclear!
