To cre­ate the lus­cious mot­tled colour ef­fect of this snood you work in a com­bi­na­tion of two Rico yarns, one a chunky al­paca and the other a mohair so it’s im­me­di­ately chunky, soft and fluffy. To cre­ate the hugely fun loops, as part of a longer stitch com­bi­na­tion, the yarn is wrapped around the thumb to cre­ate a loose loop. Re­peat this along the row for fab­u­lous tex­ture!

SNOOD The snood is worked with two strands of yarn A and one strand of yarn B held tog.
