The Adventure Snood

£0.00

Winter is here and we need knitwear. Sweaters and cardigans are great, but sometimes you just want a project that you can complete in a session or two for some instant(-ish!) gratification. Enter: the Adventure Snood. It’s a super quick project made with a single skein of Sirdar Adventure. This budget-friendly super chunky yarn offers great stitch definition, whilst also being soft, squishy and warm. The Snood itself is knit flat in trendy brioche stitch for a minimal and effortlessly chic look. The cast-on and -off edges are sewn together at the end to join it in the round. If you want, you can make the Adventure Snood into a full length scarf, but you will need another skein of Sirdar Adventure. To make my Adventure Snood, I used the shade Polar.

Note: As this product is free, you will need to add it to your cart and proceed to download the pattern from there, rather than clicking on the PayPal or Pay with Card options below. Alternatively, you can download it for free on Ravelry here. Apologies for any inconvenience this causes!

Tension

Tension is not overly important for this pattern, as there is no sizing and brioche stitch is very stretchy. However, if you are not using the same yarn as me, you may wish to check that it will work up the same way as Sirdar Adventure.

If this is the case, you should prepare a 10x10cm swatch on 15mm needles working 6 stitches over 12 rows. Each ‘V’ represents two rows. You should have 6 ‘V’s.
