Knitted Snood with Crocheted Edge

crochet vs Knit

I love crocheting, however every once in a while I do pick up my knitting needles. This time it resulted in this knitted snood.
Last winter I wanted to make a chunky snood to keep me warm and cozy. But as crochet patterns tend to hoard more yarn per gauge than knitting, I thought it would be better to find a knitted pattern. This way it would still be chunky but lighter in weight.
There is a lovely yarn shop in Copenhagen named Sommerfuglen (which means the butterfly in Danish) and here I found the softest yarn! BC Garn Silkbloom Fino consisting of 45% silk and 55% merino wool. As most crafters will know – making it yourself does not exactly mean that it is cheap, but the end result is so worth it.

Now that I had my yarn, I knew which size needle to use, and I just needed to decide on the pattern.
I found a beautiful and easy to follow one, but as this was intended for a scarf made on regular knitting needles I had to figure out how many times to repeat the pattern and number of stitches working around on a circular knitting needle.
The decision to go “off pattern” often involves a lot of casting on stitches and frogging, and so was the case here, but in the end it all worked out and I could see my snood evolving.
