Pattern 9791 - Special XL

Ladies Snoods

You certainly wont be cold this winter with this set of cowls and snoods. These are great knits for beginner knitters as they knit up fast on big needles. First we have a two colour infinity cowl worked in garter stitch. Then we have a little box stitch snood. Next up is a garter stitch basket weave infinity cowl and lastly a woven rib stitch snood.

Stylecraft's Special yarns are class leaders, arguably the best 100% premium acrylic yarn on the market with a huge number of colours to choose from. This yarn has a super soft handle, is naturally anti pilling and tough enough to handle being thrown in the washing machine. The Special range includes 4-ply, DK, Aran, Chunky, XL and Baby qualities in a fabulous range of colours to meet every knitter (and crocheters) needs. Special XL is an ideal yarn for beginner knitters or those who want results fast!
