The Dusty Snood is a great accessory for all seasons and can be worn in multiple ways. Dusty is equally stylish as a scarf, snood or both and can be worn as a shrug to keep off the evening chill. Dusty is easy and quick to make because she is knitted on big needles, in thick yarn and with a very open stitch, it grows quickly and gives a great sense of achievement. Needle size: 8 mm straight needles. Tension: 14 sts and 16 rows to 10 cm square over Eyelet Rib Stitch. Photographed in colour Alpaca Storm (dark grey). Knitted in Purl Alpaca Designs 100% pure alpaca Medium yarn. A substitute yarn is shown below. Named after Dusty Diamond the alpaca.
