Perky Snood

Convert this to knit

From: FlossieB.
I have a snood pattern I made for my daughter 2 years ago.  It is from a book I have written in the 1940"s.  All of the patterns are from that time but I kind of remember what the one that Scarlet wore in "Gone with the Wind" looked like.  I think this will work for you.  Very simple and my daughter that has hair to her waist could get all of her hair in it.  It is an open weave though. She had to use a pony tail holder and a few bobby pins on her hair to keep it neat.

Materials: (Medium size)
    2 oz.4-py yarn (wool)  I used acrylic
    crochet hook :size 3    I think I used a "G"
    1 yd. grosgrain ribbon.
    22" round elastic
Gauge:  4 meshes = 3"
 

Ch 49.
Row 1:  1 long treble crochet (long tr.) in 12th st from hook, *ch 4, skip 4 st on ch .   1 long tr in next st; repeat from* ending ch 4, skip 1 st,. 1 long tr. in last st. Ch 9. Turn.

Row 2:  1 long tr in first long tr of Row below, * ch 4, 1 long tr. in next long tr; repeat from* ending ch 4, 1 long tr in 5th st of turning ch, ch 4, 1 long tr in same st as last long tr.  Ch 9, turn.

Repeat last Row 6 times (23 meshes). Ch 9, turn.

Row 9:  Skip ch 4, 1 long tr in next long tr., * ch 4, 1 long tr in next long tr; repeat from * ending ch 4, 1 long tr in 5th st of turning ch. (23 meshes).  Ch 9, turn.

Repeat last Row 7 times, ending last Row ch 5 instead of 9.

Row 17:  Skip ch 4, 1 long tr in next long tr, work even to within 2 meshes of end, ch 4; yarn over 3 times, insert hook in next long tr and draw up a loop, over, take off 2 loops 3 times in succession, wrap yarn over hook 3 times, insert hook in 5th st of turning ch and draw up a loop (6 loops on hook), over, take off 2 loops 3 times in succession, over, take off 3 loops (a decreasing long tr), ch 5 turn.

Row 18:  Skip ch 4,  1 long tr in next long tr, work 18 meshes, ch 4, work a decreasing long tr in last 2 long tr. Ch 5, turn.

Decrease 1 mesh each side of each of next 6 rows as in last Row.  Ch 1, do not turn.

BORDER:  Sew ends of a 22 inch piece of round elastic together.  Working around elastic, work 2 sc in each mesh on entire outer edge, join with a slip st to first sc. Fasten off.
Make a tailored tie of ribbon and sew to front of snood.

*** note*** Along treble (according to the book) can be made by yo (Yarn over) any number of times and still drawing through 2 loops at a time, until one loop remains on hook.
I think I just did a regular treble crochet (tr) except where it stated.  I would have to make this again to really remember.  Good luck with this.
