However, in the end, it was shorter than a snood, he just wanted something that would keep his neck warm, without all the wrapping of a scarf.
This is what we came up with, it's about seven or eight inches deep when bunched up, so quite chunky.
The only way I could get Jonathan in front of the camera, was not to show his face. I haven't unintentionally cut off his head.
The original snood Jonathan showed me had a cable design on it. I've ordered some softer yarn, and have a pattern in mind to try. A full length snood may soon be on the needles.
In the meantime, there is another ball of this yarn to use, so another chunky neck warmer is in progress.
