Stupid Simple Snood Crochet Pattern

| Original: February 05, 2023

Crochet snoods are a huge hit this year. So I decided to jump on the crochet snood bandwagon as well and made one for myself! This crochet pattern is very beginner friendly because it's the same stitch repeated all around! In fact, it's so easy and beginner-friendly that I decided to name it the Stupid Simple Snood.

The hit show on Netflix, Wednesday has inspired many people to get crafty and learn to crochet. If you're looking for Wednesday-inspired crochet patterns, I've got you covered! 

I bought these Caron Latte Cakes from my local craft store a few years ago thinking that I would make the kids a crochet cardigan. But they were growing up faster than I could design and crochet them, so I just gave up.

I rarely use variegated yarns just because I find it uneasy when I have no control over when the color changes happen but this yarn was so soft and squishy, I couldn't pass. I was just waiting for the right project to come along. When I decided to make this easy crochet snood, I knew I had to bring some "oomph" into it and what better to do that than a novelty yarn like Caron Latte Cakes.

I wasn't sure if I was going to publish a crochet pattern for this snood because it was just so easy that most crocheters either wouldn't need a pattern or they could find a pattern somewhere else on the internet. But I thought, hey why not!

What is a snood?

Snoods (sometimes called "snoodie") are essentially extra long and extra wide infinity scarves that can go around your neck twice and be put up as a hood. The width of the snood should be able to cover the back of your head when worn as a hood.

This crochet snood pattern should not be confused with the traditional snoods that women wear in the 1940s (which we are now more familiar with as "hairnets").
