Crochet Snoody

Ok so typically called a snood somehow I think SNOODY fits it better.
I've played around with the idea of making one for a while now so I've tried it out on a child's size approx 5-7 yrs.
I love the feel of the King Cole Comfort Chunky and am finding it very hard to move away from it at the moment , must be with winter approaching that has me drawn to this yarn. Its super soft to touch which makes it perfect for snuggly winter wears.
Autumnal colours are catching my eye, greens, browns purples all the rustic shades I'm itching to get working with.
This SNOODY is super cosy and sooo warm.
