12 free vintage hair snood patterns

Here are 12 free vintage crochet snood patterns to try!  The basic ones like the Perky Snood and Sweet Sue are pretty easy if you're already familiar with crochet. If you're not, crochet is easy to learn and there are loads of wonderful tutorials for each stitch on you tube. I love to curl up on the couch with a Netflix marathon and ball of yarn. These patterns call for vintage yarns, many of which are no longer made but any sport weight modern yarn should be a good start with a 5mm hook (a size up or down is okay, snoods are pretty forgiving!)

If you don't crochet, check out my shop, Tinsel Town Accessories for handmade snoods in every color of the rainbow!




Nothing beats a handmade snood! When I first became interested in vintage fashion, I found a shop at my local mall that sold snoods in every color imaginable for about $3. I was so excited, I bought the whole rainbow. They weren't the worst thing. They did the job of holding my hair back but I never realized how slinky and flat they looked until I compared them to a handmade snood. The cheap store bought ones required about a million pins to keep them from sliding off and since they were made of a weird nylon cord, they looked so flat and saggy in the back, instead of perky and full. Whether you invest money to buy one or time to make one, I think they're well worth it for a great snood!

  3. Thank you so much for sharing this, what a great collection of snoods!
    I taught myself to crochet based on a you tube tutorial for a snood a while ago and I have made a few in different colours in that style so have been looking for some new snoods to make. I know what you mean about the way the slinky ones sit and since my hair is naturally very straight I don't have the volume to fill them. That's why I like the fuller hand knit ones. They are great for wet winter days when my hair won't even entertain the idea of a curl.
    Thanks again!
    Also I'm sorry if this comment comes up twice but something went wrong the first time I posted it and I'm not totally sure it worked.

  4. How cool! Man, I really need to learn to crochet... unfortunately, it doesn't seem like knit snoods are a thing, and I haven't been able to figure out how to crochet to save my life.

  5. This is timely! I just finished my first attempt at the Perky Snood but did it in worsted weight with a smaller hook but it's too bulky on my small head. Trying another one in #3 thread *fingers crossed*. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of this fabulous info!

  8. I have black hair, which colors in your opinion would look best? I'd like a couple of different ones, go for the 1940s look, and don't want to look weird/what in the world are you wearing? How do you pair colors with outfits? I'm also, fwiw, making a capsule wardrobe based on your post to be my vintage 1940 wardrobe. Thanks in advance!
