what could be simpler, more versatile, and suddenly, more chic, than a long, knitted tube? the snood abides. and once again, it's a trend we knitters were onto long before burberry or missoni thought to revive it for fall.
rifling through my stash of vintage vogues, i came across this rihanna-ready specimen from 1985. insert your own shoulder pads and thinly veiled irony and you're snood to go! everything old is new again! or, as my mother likes to say, "it ALL comes back."
but this time around, it is decidedly NOT your grandma's snood.
a quick google turned up versions from the high-end net-a-porter to the more affordable gap.
or, for even more recession-friendly fashion: grab some bulky yarn from your stash and a pair of big needles and whip up your own. with a few additional inches of stockinette, my free XO UO cowl pattern could easily be turned snood-worthy.
