Snood Making

3pm - 4pm
Lady Brighid Bhreathnach
This is a hands on class that produces what appears to be a netted fabric hair covering. The method (crochet) is NOT period. What I have attempted to do is recreate the look of a period hairnet using the modern method of crochet. While snoods produced this way are perfect for completing the garb you want to wear to next week's event, they are not appropriate for entering into A&S Faires and such. Class handouts are free. Bring your own ball of number 10 crochet cotton and a size 2, 3 or 4 steel crochet hook (2.75mm - 2.25mm). Or buy a kit for $4.00.
