Also known as an infinity scarf, neck warmer, cowl and tube scarf, a snood is a knitted loop that you wrap around your neck like a scarf, or wear over your head to keep warm. They are easy to knit, and totally on trend - ideal for the 20 to Make series. This book includes 20 unique designs in a range of colours and styles and using a variety of knitting stitches and yarns. Some of the snoods are knitted in lighter, lacy yarns for spring and summer, while others are made in medium and heavier yarns for autumn and winter.
Monica Russel has built a reputation for easy, stylish knits. To date, she has written four successful books for Search Press. The patterns are suitable for competent beginners as well as more advanced knitters, and make great gifts for family and friends. Snoods are currently very fashionable and this book should appeal to older, more traditional knitters as well as the younger, more contemporary market.
