About the snood
So the snood is finished! It was rather easy but I did have to rip it because the pattern confused me a bit. Pattern: Perky Snood
for starters to do a long trebble crochet you YO 3 times before inserting your hook into your work then you YO and draw through 2 loops on the hook 4 times.
This pattern is basically a octagon you can adjust the length by adding or subtracting repeats of row 9.
the increases and decreases are on both sides of each row. When it says "long tr in 1st tr" it means to do a long tr in the stitch that you just chained up from and this adds a mesh square at the start. The increase at the end is fairly clear. Here are some different angles of my finished snood.
for the trim I did it as DC, ch1, DC, ch1.... all the way around placing a DC in the same stitches as the long trebble crochet stitches are and 2 in each block. on the decrease triangle blocks I did one DC in each block space. I then made a foundation row SC (or chain less foundation) and laced it through the DC and used it for a tie. I made the chain less foundation long enough to be able to tie it into a bow. It can either be tied at the top or hidden underneath. Oh, and this design took nearly the whole ball of red thread and that includes making the tie.
This is a photo of just the body finished w/o any edging or the tie.
