My Tullia Snood in Rowan Fazed Tweed has been such a useful accessory this year. A simple but effective design.  I finished knitting it in the school christmas holidays and took it on its first outing to the beach at West Bay in Dorset (where Broadchurch is filmed, if you’ve been watching it on TV!) at the start of the new year. It’s been so bitterly cold this winter that I’ve also worn it in the house too!  It’s a very adaptable knit as it can be worn as a loose cowl around the neck, or it can be worn lower down around the shoulders for an instant hug of warmth.  See the pictures below from the Fazed Tweed brochure.  My Snood is knitted in a gorgeous purple called ‘Sycamore’ 003.

The brochure contains 16 designs by Marie Wallin.  The Fazed Tweed yarn is an interesting mix of wool, and fine alpaca, with a filled tube like construction giving a soft blended tweed like knitted fabric.  I found it very easy to knit with and I really love the tweed effect.
