Make a crochet snood to use up your leftover yarn!

Crochet Snood- FREE CROCHET PATTERN | Scrap Yarn Series

[Written Pattern + Video Tutorial]

Today we will be making a crochet snood using leftover yarn laying in your yarn stash!

I often have leftover yarn from all my crochet projects so I decided it was time to use all of that and crochet something quick and easy.

The snood can be worn as a neck warmer or pulled up to protect your neck and ears from cold weather and wind! How convenient, right?

Level: Beginner

  • Any kind of leftover yarn you have: I've used Bulky yarn but you can also use 2 strands of Medium weight yarn or 3 strands of Sport/DK yarn held together

  • 10 mm Crochet Hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors
  • Tape Measure
  • Stitch Markers (optional)

Ch= Chain

Sl St= Slip Stitch

Sl Kn= Slip Knot

Hdc= Half Double Crochet

Hdcblo = Half Double Crochet Back Loop Only

The beginning ch doesn't count as a stitch.

Sl kn and chain a total amount of chains that correspond to 62 inches.
I chained 134 but feel free to add or remove chains accordingly.

Once you reach 62 inches, being really careful not to twist your chain, sl st into the first ch.

Row 1: Ch 1, 1 hdc into that first ch where you sl st and in each ch around.
If you don’t know how to make a hdc: yarn over, insert your hook into the ch, pull up a loop (you should have 3 loops on your hook). Yarn over again and pull through all 3 loops.

Continue like that until your last chain. After your last hdc, sl st into the 1st st of the row.

Row 2: Ch 1, 1 hdcblo into the same st where you sl st and in each st around.
If you're a beginner, you might want to use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of the round so you don't get confused!

Repeat Row 2 until you reach a 13.5 inches long piece. I made a total of 24 rows.

As you are using scrap yarn, you need to change colour pretty often!

How do you change colour seamlessly?

To change colour seamlessly, start to crochet the stitch like usual (yarn over and pull up a loop, you have 3 loops on your hook); before yarning over again and close the stitch, drop the yarn you’re using and grab the new colour, using it to close this st.
Make sure to keep a small tail on both colours. Pull them a little bit and keep them inside your next 3 or 4 stitches if you want, this way you secure them properly and you can later one sew the ends inside using the yarn needle.

Once you reach a 13.5 inches long piece, you're ready to cut the yarn and fasten off.

How do you do the invisible fasten off so the edge is clean and tidy?

At your final round, cut the yarn off leaving around 4-6 inches (12-15cm) end. Pull the hook up all the way to unravel the loop on your hook.
Thread the yarn onto the needle and insert it into the first stitch of the row. Pull the yarn through, go back and insert the needle into the back loop only of the last hdc made in this round. This way you create a loop that connects the last and first stitch without gaps or bumps.

Weave in this and all the other loose ends of your work, preferably on the wrong side.

You snood is ready!

To wear it, wrap it around your neck in two loops pulling the back up to protect your neck and ears from cold weather and wind.

You can also pull it down and wear it as a simple neck warmer if you want.
