Knit and Crochet Snood Patterns for a Cozy Winter

What is a snood? When I looked into the meaning of this term, I discovered that it basically was a hair net. But it has evolved to also mean “a wide ring of knitted material worn as a hood or a scarf.” So with that somewhat more broad definition, we go forth into finding some lovely cozy hooded cowl patterns, or hooded scarves, or snood patterns to make to keep cozy this winter.

I have been eyeing up the TikTok Hooded Cowl Crochet Pattern from The Creatrix in the Matrixx for a while. This warm and cozy snood pattern went viral last year and it’s not hard to see why. As you can see in the video below, the addition of the panels means there is a cozy covering to keep you covered under a shawl collared coat. This is the kind of winter coat that I have and this hooded cowl would be almost perfect. The only trouble for me is that I don’t want to pull it over my head every time!

This Furry Balaclava Crochet Pattern from JustBInnovative. I’m a big fan of faux fur yarn, even though it has a bit of a learning curve to work with. I don’t recommend it for beginners because you need to have a consistent stitch gauge. You also need to understand the construction of stitches to “feel” where to put the stitches since the faux fur hides them quite well. The advantage of this is that it’s not “hole-y” like other crocheted garments can be. Again, this is a pull over the head hood.

The Inga Hood knitting pattern from Amy La Roux Pattern Shop is a hooded cowl knitting pattern that is great over the head snood to consider. I love the texture and simplicity of the garter stitch. The designer recommends this as an intermediate pattern because the pattern requires the skill of grafting.

This Button Neck Hooded Cowl Crochet Pattern from Well Ravelled might be just the thing for me, since it has buttons at the cowl part. I wouldn’t have to pull this over my head to put it on! I would want a front panel to properly fit under my coat, but this construction is certainly an option for me.

The Gran’dana Hooded Cowl Crochet Pattern from LES by Ruby Baby is a poncho-inspired hooded cowl. The design uses mostly granny stitch and a drawstring to cinch up that hood. This might be better suited to less extreme winters than we have here in Edmonton. Our winter winds would blow right through that granny stitch hood, but it is very fun looking.

The Convertible Hooded Cowl Crochet Pattern from the Nerd Asylum Crafts is a cozy pattern with a removable hood! The buttons around the hood allow you to wear the cowl without the hood if you want!

The Evie George Cozy Hooded Cowl Crochet Pattern from Knitty Bitty Committee is a gorgeous and cozy hooded cowl. It looks so luxurious with all that cozy fabric to wrap yourself in! This is definitely a consideration, even though it’s a pull over your head construction.

Ok, full disclosure, I’m probably not going to wear a Lion Hooded Cowl made with this crochet pattern from mon petit violon. But it is so adorable, I had to include it!

The Vemdalen Hooded Scarf Knitting Pattern from Amy La Roux Pattern Shop is another good option. It doesn’t have to go on over the head, so it’s a good contender for my needs. And also, it is an option for the knitters who don’t crochet out there.

The Alasse Miriel Hooded Cowl Knitting Pattern by The Jane Victoria is a delicate, beautiful, Victorian-style hooded cowl pattern. It has a capelet look to it and would be perfect if you were harkening to a Victorian-era style. This is another good and interesting option for knitters.

The Autumn Hooded Cowl Pattern from Wooly Gems is a cozy knitting pattern featuring a button to make it even more snug once fastened. Also, there is no pointy hood with this pattern. It uses short-rows to shape the hood, so you will need to know (or learn!) short rows to make this pattern.

I hope you’re keeping warm where you are. If you’re not, take the time to whip up one of these snood patterns this winter. Grab your yarn and supplies and pick up a pattern and get making! Or pin it for later on your ideas board!
