What is a Snood?

Now, you might be wondering, “What’s a snood?”.  Well, think of it as a circular scarf that you can effortlessly loop around your neck. No loose ends to tuck in, no fuss. It’s a versatile accessory that adds a cozy layer to your outfits for fall and cold winters.

Why is it called snood?

The term “snood” itself has an interesting history. Its usage has evolved over time.

Originally, it referred to a type of hairnet or head covering worn by women in the medieval and Renaissance eras. These hairnets were typically made of fabric, lace, or even knitted or crocheted materials, and they helped keep a woman’s hair tidy and in place.

Over the years, it transitioned from a hairnet to scarf-like accessory. Today, it is a fashion accessory. A circular or tubular scarf that you can wear around your neck.

Unlike traditional scarves, snoods don’t have loose ends hanging down, making them easy to drape and style. You can simply loop it around your neck one or more times, and it stays in place without the need for knots or tucking in loose ends.

So, while the traditional snood originally had a different meaning related to a hair net, it has adapted to describe a cozy and fashionable accessory that has become a staple in cold-weather wardrobes.

Wear a Cozy Snood

Why do people wear snoods?

People wear snoods for both practical and fashionable reasons.

They are excellent at providing warmth in cold weather. They cover the head and neck. Often, they are large enough to be wrapped around multiple times.

Think of a snood as a type of infinity scarf. With a wide range of colors, patterns, and textures, making them a versatile fashion accessory. They can be matched with different outfits to add a pop of color or a touch of elegance.

They are incredibly easy to wear. Unlike traditional scarves that require folding and knotting. If you are active, one of the most significant advantages of snoods is that they don’t have loose ends hanging down, which can be bothersome or get in the way.

Snoods are simply looped around the neck, making them a quick and convenient choice. No Loose Ends.

Is There a Correct Way to Wear a Snood?

Snoods can be worn in various ways, depending on personal style and the weather. Wrap around your head, twist, and loop around your neck. You can wear them loosely draped for a casual look or wrap them snugly for extra warmth.

Depending on the yarn used and the stitch pattern, they can be a seasonal accessory. More often, they are worn in the fall and winter. However, a lacy and light style can be work in cooler seasons.

Wear it like any fashion accessory. Express your personal style and preferences.

Snood Infinity Scarf Wrapped Around Shoulder

Ripple Infinity Scarf Crochet Pattern

Technically, this snood is a generously sized infinity scarf that can be styled as a snood or a bulky infinity scarf. It’s the right size for a snuggly accessory.

The ripple stitch, aka chevron, is a popular basic stitch pattern. There are so many variations.

Every ripple stitch pattern follows the same basic construction. Decreases and increases at regular intervals along the row create an undulating wave-like look. Some have pointy peaks and others have a wavy ripple design.

Double Crochet Ripple Stitch

You may recognize this tipple stitch pattern. I recently did a baby blanket in this crochet stitch. The free crochet pattern only uses double crochet stitches to form the peaks and valleys.

Yarn for This Pattern

I used a Caron Cotton Cakes variegated yarn which is a medium weight yarn. The gorgeous yarn color changes on their own throughout the scarf as I crochet along.

This crocheted snood is a great pattern for any kind of yarn such as a worsted weight, aran yarn, cotton yarn, acrylic yarn, or a heavier chunky yarn. There is a whole host of options for you to choose from.

If you really want a chunky look, you can hold two strands of yarn together and create a bulky weight yarn to work the stitches.

To get the size you want for this accessory, just make a smaller Swatch first so you end up with the correct sized finished product.

Make it in your favorite colors.

Skill Level

Confident Beginner. You should be able to work the Double Crochet stitch.


15 inches wide x 65 inches long

You can change the finished size by adjusting the beginning chain stitches and the rows.

The width of the snood can easily be adjusted using multiples of 12 plus 3. That means your initial chain should be divisible by 12. Then add three more chain stitches.

Change the length by adding or decreasing the rows.


10 stitches and 12 rows of single crochet every 4 inches.

Crochet Pattern Notes

Turn at the end of each row.

The chain three at the beginning of each row counts as a double crochet.

Repeat row 2 throughout the pattern.

It is quite easy to keep track of where you left off with the repeating pattern. When working the double crochet two together stitches, they create the valleys. Working two double crochet stitches in one stitch creates the soft peaks. These are the two key elements in working the simple ripple stitch.

Keep your stitches loose. Make sure to place your last stitch in the top stitch of the previous row turning chain. This helps make the sides very straight.

Crochet Pattern Directions


Work 51 Chain Stitches. Turn

Row 1

DC in 4th chain from hook. (First 3 CH STs skipped count as the first DC). [1 DC in each of the next 3 CH STs.  Work a DC2TOG, and one more DC2TOG. 1 DC in each of the next 3 CH STs. Work 2 DC in the next CH ST, and 2 DC in the next CH ST.] Repeat across between [ ]. End with 2 DC in the last CH ST. Turn

Row 2

CH 3 (Counts as a DC). DC in the same ST. (Another way to say this, if you count STs, it will be the 4th CH from the hook). [1 DC in each of the next 3 STs. 2DCTOG twice. 1 DC in each of the next 3 STs. 2 DC in the next ST, and 2 DC in the next ST.] Repeat across between [ ]. End with 2 DC into the top of the CH 3 turning chain from the previous row. Turn

Rows 3 through 96

Repeat row 2

Do not cut the yarn when you finish the last row. You will use the yarn and crochet hook to work slip stitches to join the two ends.

Joining The Ends Using Slip Stitch

Joining the Ends of the Simple Ripple Infinity Scarf

Fold in half and bring the ends of the scarf together aligning the ends and making sure not to twist the scarf.

The stitches should line up across from each other.

Put the crochet hook through both loops on both ends. Yarn over and complete a SL ST.

Continue working a SL ST through each stitch on both sides until you reach the last ST.


Cut the yarn off leaving about a 12 inch long yarn tail. Pull through the last loop. Use the yarn needle to weave in the long tail. Remove the excess.

If you make things for craft fairs, I have a sneaky suspicion that this would be a great seller.
