Doh! Now I've got my mind going on what kind of things would work for a knit
snood... I'm supposed to be working on a sweater for my lord... (which,
thankfully, seems to be knitting up fairly quickly so far... But, I've only
made it up to the armhole shaping of the back piece, so there's still a lot
left to go!)
I would say yarn overs and increases are definately the way to go. The only
question would be in what pattern would the snood end up looking really nice?

: I did make some icky odd looking things when I first

: As I don't know how to knit yet, I would assume that
:you have the right idea with doing yarn overs and
:increases until you get as large as you need.
: Good luck!
