As promised, here is the pattern for the Sag(ittarius) Snood/ Cowl! I made the snood version for Chris’ birthday, which just so happens to be tomorrow! It’s super bulky and super warm, just in time for winter. I love the texture of double seed stitch, especially in a bulky yarn like Brown Sheep Burly Spun. Whether you make the snood or cowl version, you’ll be able to tuck right in once the snow starts falling.
Cowl: 32 inch (81 cm) circumference and 8 inches (20 cm) high (fully extended)
Snood: 32 inch (81 cm) circumference and 23 inches (58 cm) high (fully extended)
Brown Sheep Burly Spun (100% wool; 132 yards/ 121 metres)
Cowl: 1 skein of Sable (BS07)
Snood: 3 skeins of Deep Charcoal (BS06)
US 15 (10.0 mm)/ 20 inch (50 cm) circular needle, or size to achieve gauge
10 sts in 4 inches (10 cm) of stockinette stitch
Double Seed Stitch in the round
Round 1: * P2, k2; rep from*.
Round 2: same as round 1
Round 3: * K2, p2; rep from*.
Round 4: same as round 3
Repeat these 4 rounds for pattern stitch.
Cast on 80 sts (I used the cable cast on method)
Work pattern stitch until piece measures 8 inches (20 cm) from the cast on edge for cowl, 23 inches (58 cm) for snood (or desired length)
Bind off (I used the chain bind off method)
Brave the weather!
