Knit in the round from cushy yarn that’s as soft as mist rising over a frozen river, the Ice River Snood is warm and snug enough to see you through an afternoon of skating, sledding, or holiday errands around town. An easy lace pattern mimics the effect of cables and brings to mind the fascinating shapes of ripples and waves suspended in time by a sudden cold snap.

The bulky yarn means that this is a super-fast knit, even for beginners. It’s also easy to adapt to another yarn, or adjust the size to fit anyone from a toddler to an abominable snowman. Make one for yourself and one for a friend, or even knit an extra to have in reserve for a last-minute emergency gift.
