Stay warm this winter with an adorable Little Red Riding Hood inspired snood.
The idea for a Little Red Riding Hood inspired snood hit me as soon as I saw the colour of Rex, this gorgeous hand spun and hand dyed yarn from The Indie Yarn Store. I stitched with two strands of yarn and the finished result feels so silky and luxurious, giving the hood an extra cosy weight.
