Simple Snood Free Knitting Pattern
This cozy knit snood is an easy knitting project. It’s perfectly simple for beginner knitters to make too.
This snood is knit as a rectangle and seamed. So if you prefer the versatility of a traditional scarf you can leave it unseamed too.
I use my circular needles but since this snood is knit flat you can use straight needles.

The chunky yarn knits up quickly. I love knitting with Lion Brand’s Wool Ease Thick & Quick. The are so many different colors to choose from too.

As a flat rectangle snood measures 8″ wide by 60″ long.
To make this pattern wider or narrower cast on any number of stitches. Keep an even number of stitches if you would like to adjust the width.
To change the length, adjust the number of repeats. Likely you’ll need more yarn if making changes.

How To Knit Double Seed Stitch in the Round
Cast on an even number and join to work in the round. Here's a tutorial on how to join knitting in the round. I CO 18 here using the magic loop method.
I recommend using a stitch marker to mark the beginning of each round when knitting this stitch in the round.
When you change from Rnd 2 to Rnd 3 you’ll have 2 purls together.
When you change from Rnd 4 to Rnd 1 you’ll have 2 knits together.
The stitch marker will help alleviate any confusion on your part!
Rnd 1. *K1, P1 rep from * to the end of the rnd. Place SM after last st to mark BOR.
Rnd 2. Rep Rnd 1.
Rnd 3. *P1, K1 rep from * to the end of rnd.
Rnd 4. Rep Rnd 4.
Rep these four rounds for the height of your project.
Bind off. Cut yarn and weave in ends.
