Free Vintage Crochet Pattern: Perky Snood


Here it is!  The cutest, easiest little snood pattern of all time.
Using a yarn color similar to your hair color is more conservative but feel free to use what ever you would like.  Personally, I've had my eye on a yellow, red and orange blend of yarn that i just might have to try.  And remember that you can substitute the 4-ply wool and  size 3 hook for any other kind of yarn or hook as long as your gauge is the same.
Original 1942 pattern from

I'm growing out my hair, and although it may be a while before I will use these, is the pattern fairly easy to follow? I know more about knitting than I do crochet, but would really like to make this.

I might browse free crochet.com to see what they have too. I am in need of a snood. :)
