You Can Make A Gorgeous Hair Snood Accessory With Self Ruffling Mesh Scarf Yarn!

One of the hottest items at your local yarn shop is the mesh yarn available in a plethora of beautiful colors and brands which you use to create beautiful ruffled scarves.

Recently I purchased a skein of Starbella Flash to make a scarf. While it was waiting its turn in the yarn bag, I decided I wanted to make a snood to tie up my long hair. The yarn I had bought just happened to catch my eye, and inspiration was born!

I'm not going to give you sittch-by-stitch directions on this particular snood, but will give you general guidelines on how I did mine so you can recreate it for yourself. Mine only took about an hour to make and that included figuring out how to do it!

What is a snood? In its most basic form, it's a little sack you put your ponytail in, secured at the top typically by a drawstring that you tie. They can be crocheted, knitted, or made of fabric. Some snoods also have an attached headband piece, which is the kind of snood I made. I added a section - the little hair bag part - using Hobby Lobby's "Princess" metallic chenille yarn. It was a bit tricky for me at first figuring out how to put it on my head, but once I did I loved it and it stayed in place all day long!

Now it will be even harder to resist all those gorgeous mesh yarns because I can make them into snoods to match all my outfits! Have fun with it! You can make this with or without the headband part.

I own and love this yarn cutting pendant! It's so handy when I'm working in stripes and have to cut yarn frequently! No more searching for where I laid the scissors!


Adding The Silver Section

Attach silver Princess yarn to snood flap at top right edge. Work SC's evenly across piece. Chain about 10, join to place where you attached yarn. We are creating the bottom of the hair bag now.

Work SC in one stitch, 2 SC in next stitch around, join. Continue increasing in this manner until the bag is the circumference around you want, then stop increasing and work even rows. Continue this until the bag is the length (height?) you want. Fasten off.

I own and love every size of this crochet hook. They allow me to keep crocheting despite severe arthritis in my hands.


I wanted some meshy pattern so I used this stitch pattern for several rounds... TRC in first st. *Skip 2 st, TRC in next st. Ch 2,TRC in same stitch. Repeat from * around. End with sl st in first st.

Make The Headband

Holding the Starbella in its unstretched out tape form, using a Q hook, make a chain the length you want the headband to be PLUS enough length to weave in and out of the top round of the hair bag PLUS enough length for a bow tie to close the hair bag.

Now do all the above weaving.

You'll put the headband on, tuck your ponytail into the bag, draw the ends secure and tie in bow.

I recently purchased this for myself. It's handy to know how much yarn a given project requires when you're going to be making more than one!


Just thought I'd show you this - not part of the snood.

This is so much more attractive than what I used for years, a 3 pound coffee can with a hole cut in the plastic lid! Anybody testify? Bonus... this won't snag your thread, either.


A Note From Your Designer...

Hi, I'm SheilaSchnauzies, also published as SheilaSparkles, and my life's passion is designing in Crochet! I also love to share gifts with friends, and this pattern is my gift to you! I give away about 95% of my pattern designs free. The other 5% are sold on my pattern store at to benefit the vet expenses of my Miniature Schnauzer Rescue, Sheila's Schnauzies.

Just one little favor, please... I would appreciate it if you do not post this pattern anywhere on the Internet or in the 'real world.' Instead, you are most welcome to provide a link to this webpage.

I use a system I call the "Official Schnauzer Difficulty Rating" just for fun, to rate the difficulty of my patterns. If it's a 3/5 or more, I'll explain why I consider it more difficult. A few of my designs use techniques that are a bit unconventional! If it's one of those patterns, I'll warn you ahead of time. I do a lot of custom-fit patterns, for example. They are made to fit YOU, not a measurement from a chart. They're surprisingly easy to do and actually end up fitting. That's a good thing, yes?

So glad you found my patterns! I hope you really enjoy making whatever it is you're making! Crochet hugs, -Sheila
