Snood Headband



Use a free crochet pattern like this one to make a snood pattern. Berta made this for her Granddaughter who loves Swing Dancing and 40’s styling. "We saw one in a book, so I did a pencil sketch and created this one. I wore one when I was younger to hold back my long hair."

I had no problems with the elastic as I used a yarn needle to thread it in the first stitch row as instructed then with a needle and thread folded a little over and sewn it in place then did the same on the other side. Then I single chained across the small edge of the headband over the elastic then continued on around the snood portion the all the way across to where I had sewn the other end of the elastic. I have no Idea what they are talking about with the buttons though so I just left those out.

I guess I'm kinda dumb but I got confused on the snood on row 3 don't you have to sc at the end? If you don't how can you begin the next row with a sc in 1st stitch. Then row 7 is supposed to repeat row 2 but there are no sc in row 6. Haven't even got to the elastic yet H E L P I guess I'm just dumb.
