The snood

There is a very big trend hitting the Bates College campus this winter. The trend I’m talking about is a fashion accessory called the snood. What is a snood? Well, it’s pretty much a really thick scarf that is made in a circle so that you can warp it around your neck.

My mom made me a snood when I was in high school and it is the softest thing I’ve ever worn. It’s white and warm and lovely. My roommate has nice snood from J.Crew which, unfortunately, is sold out online. Are snoods big on your campus? And has anyone heard them called anything else? I just called mine a wrap-around-scarf until this year, so, I’m kind of behind the times.

This website here has a knitting plan for a snood. I haven’t tried it so I have no idea if it’s any good but I thought I would pass it along anyway. Doesn’t it looks so warm?
