Snoods, it's a 40's thing

I have always loved the look of a snood. In the 80's they were popular for a couple of years and I used to crochet them by the dozen's. Plain ones, beaded ones, I connected them to big beautiful barretts and they sold like crazy. A gal on one of my lists gave us a pattern for a snood for a doll and I thought, wow, why didn't I think of that. I'm always trying to keep my doll's hair neat in between displaying them and also while changing their clothes-especially the dolls with mohair wigs. I sat down and immediately crocheted one. It's darling and is being modeled by Claudia. She's most happy to have her hair kept safe and tidy in her new royal blue snood.
