This crocheted snood – or hair net – pattern is perfect for keeping your hair out of the way while hanging around the house, or letting your curly hair dry undisturbed. Whip one up with this super quick, free crochet pattern!
Crochet Snood (Hair Net)
Since I rarely leave the house nowadays I’m letting my naturally wavy hair air-dry. It’s almost to the middle of my back which means that it takes a while to dry. While this isn’t a huge deal, I’d like for it to be up and off of my neck while it does so, and this snood is the perfect solution!
For this crocheted hair net we are using Curio #3 crochet thread. I had originally wanted to use a cotton yarn – like my favorite cotton, Dishie – but I worried that the 100% cotton would suck too much moisture out of the hair. Keep this in mind if you are worried about your own hair’s moisture as well. Of course, if you’re not using this while your hair is drying, but rather to keep your already dry hair off of your neck/back, then it won’t really matter which you use.
