Cosy Snood to Keep out the Chill

It can get pretty cold up here in the North of Scotland in Winter, particularly during the school run, that playground can feel pretty nippy. This winter has been problematic for me so far, being plagued with ear infections etc, which has meant I have been needing a cosy hat/scarf to bundle up my face and ears. The other day a parcel arrived in the post address to me from my mum.
My mum, Margaret is a seasoned knitting addict and in the blink of an eye she has knocked out a cosy winter snood to keep me warm - it's perfect, and as the snow begins to fall for the first time this winter, I am enjoying pulling on my snood and snuggling it around my face.

I asked my Mum for the pattern she used, and experienced knitter that she is, she didn't use one, but she helpfully passed on instructions for us novices (I still can't give up the hook for the needles I'm afraid!!)

" cast on 100 stitches and knit in rib until 100g ball of wool is used up. You can knit on 2 pins and sew seam or knit on circular needles, which is what i did for this one. "

So there you go, snoods all round this season I reckon, could be the next big thing.......
