This whimsical snood can be worn as a snug capelet, cowl or jaunty hood. A joy to knit, the piece features 14 repeats of a feathered pattern and lattice cabling at the top. A tasseled I-cord functions as a drawstring that runs through gaps created by double yarn overs. Advanced design with sophisticated function, too. Davidoff provides excellent photo tutorials for making the tassels as well. Please take time to make swatches before beginning your project.
