Enid’s Snood – Wednesday-Inspired Crochet Snood Free Pattern

I recently fell in love with the new Netflix series called Wednesday. Directed by Tim Burton, the show focuses on Wednesday Addams and her investigations at Nevermore Academy. While At Nevermore, Wednesday reluctantly becomes friends with Enid Sinclair who eventually makes and gifts Wednesday a crochet snood.

I thought it was so cute that I set out to make my own and (of course), share the free crochet snood pattern with you for Enid’s Snood.

The Enid’s Snood pattern is a beginner-friendly crochet pattern and works up quickly. I have include notes for how to adjust the length of this pattern to your preferred length.

I’ve also included notes on how to give this snood a new look by turning Enid’s Snood into Wednesday’s Snood instead. A step-by-step video tutorial is available for this pattern as well.

When I set out to make Enid’s Snood, I had the hardest time trying to get a good look at the snoods worn by the characters in the show. The scene in the episode Quid Pro Woe, where Enid gifts Wednesday the snood in their dorm room is so short that the snoods just didn’t get much screen time. But I could tell right away that it was crocheted.

I got lucky when the actress that plays Enid Sinclair, Emma Myers in the show posted a photo on Instagram of her and Wednesday actress, Jenna Ortega sporting their crochet snoods. This was the first time that I was able to get a really decent look at the snood and I had enough to get started.

What Kind Of Yarn Can I Use to Make Enid’s Snood?

The snood that Enid wears in the show is made with a bulky weight. yarn but honestly, I didn’t have any of that on-hand and I didn’t want to run out and get new yarn.

I used three different shades of pink worsted weight yarn for this snood and held two strands of each colour together to make a bulky-weight yarn.

This actually makes the snood pretty cost effective since the yarn I used normally would cost me about $15 for all three.

If you don’t want to do that, you can use any yarn of your preference, be that bulky weight or super bulky. It’s really easy to customize.

Finished Size:

  • Approx. 11.5” tall x 60” around

  • This pattern is worked in joined rounds (unless stated otherwise). Do not turn at the end of the round.

  • If you prefer not to work two strands together, a bulky or super bulky weight yarn of your preference can be substituted.

  • This project is worked with the yarn held double (meaning two strands of the same colour are held together and worked as if it is one strand).  Pull from both sides of the skein or make a second yarn ball/cake of each colour before starting.
  • A stitch marker can be used to keep track of the first and/or last stitch of every round to avoid confusion with the slip stitch join (optional).

  • Colour changes are done using the last yarn over of the last stitch before the color change is indicated.

  • CH 3 at the beginning of every round counts as the first stitch of the round.

  • Make the Wednesday version of this snood by using black yarn instead of three shades of pink. Pair white yarn with the black to make the tassels for Wednesday’s snood. You’ll need approximately 625 yds of worsted weight black yarn to make it in one color (when worked to gauge).

  • To adjust the length of this pattern, create a chain to your desired length then follow given instructions.

Tassels (Make 3 – 6, depending on preference)

  1. Holding two strands of different coloured yarn together, wrap the tassel maker 13 times.  Cut yarn.

  2. Cut two strands of yarn in the same colours used to wrap the tassel maker to approx. 8 – 10” long. Wrap this yarn around the center of the tassel and tie a tight knot.  Feed the yarn ends through the tassel frame and flip the frame over.  Tie another knot on this side of the frame.

  3. Holding on to the center of your tassel, use your scissors to cut along the groove of the frame each end of the frame to free the yarn from tassel maker.

  4. Grab the yarn tails from the knots you tied and hang the bundle of yarn so all the yarn hangs down and smooth it out with your hand. 

  5. Cut two pieces of matching yarn approximately 16” long to create the head of your tassel.  Holding the yarn double, make a loop in your yarn approximately 2” from the end and hold the twist in your yarn up against the tassel with the tail of your yarn pointing up. 

  6. With your free hand, wrap the rest of the yarn piece clockwise around the tassel taking care not to cover your loop with your wrapping.  Wrap the yarn as many times as you’d like while keeping enough tail to finish off.

  7. When you’re done wrapping, feed the tail of your yarn, through the loop you created.  Pull on both your yarn tails firmly until the loop disappears.    Cut both tails.

  8. Trim the end of the tassel even with scissors.

  9. Use the tails that are at the top of your tassel to secure the tassels to your snood.

  1. Hi Ashley. Like you, I am watching and loving the Netflix series Wednesday, and also thought “I have to make that!” as soon as I saw the snood was crocheted Thank you for making up this pattern and sharing it so quickly! It looks great

  2. What does it look like off the body? Like is it like a scarf?

      • Glade you did the for everyone they call it a snood but if you look it up you get a ballerina bun cover.lol I have never heard it call a snood alway a infinity scarf

        • Yeah, I’m not sure how wearing a scarf this way became known as a snood because when I google it, I find both the ballerina bun cover and scarves like this.

          • Re: the confusion about the definition of snood. I think that the snood as a cowl worn over the head is more of a Britishism, and snood as a fancy hair net is an American term. I never heard a cowl/hood referred to as a snood until I saw it used that way on some UK crochet blogs.

  3. So this is pretty much an infinity scarf pulled up on your head right? I thought snoods were a scarf with a hood. Guess they can come in all shapes. I dislike the ones with the point in the top back of the head.This one is nice. You did a great job. I’ll have to check with my grandaughters to see if any of the want me to make them one.I’m sure they watch the show

    • Essentially, yes. A snood is traditionally a hair net for a bun so I don’t know when/how it became a scarf like this. I posted a video today on Instagram today for how to wrap it/put it on so if you do end up making some for your granddaughters, you can find that here: https://www.instagram.com/p/ClrY3CZgAEX/

    • When I was growing up (in the 40”s & 50’s , a snood was a very elegant netting that was used to hold long hair in place, If there was a bun it was very, ,very loose
      bun and it was covered by the snood, also. I feel certain that hairpins were used to hold the long hair and/or bun together and in place. The snood was usually fastened behind the ears and some times in front, over the ears. I feel certain the the person wearing the snood did not move her head very much for fear of the snood slipping off. It was a romantic way to wear ones hair.

  4. Thank you so much for the video and pattern, I’m finishing a snood for myself. Can I please know how many stitches did you start for your daughter? I have a 4 year old who also wants one. Thank you.

    • Hi Di,
      I made a cowl for my daughter instead of a snood (she just can’t figure out the wrapping of a snood yet). If you want to also make a cowl, let me know and I can check the count when my daughter gets home from school with it or if you’d like a child-size snood, I can tell you roughly how to make it a good size for her.

  5. I’m not sure if I missed it or if its just not in the instructions, but I watched the video and read the pattern and I’m still not sure what to do with my last color when i switch colors. Do i cut it and tie it off? it seems like when you go into the color again you’ve already got the yarn balls separated and didn’t show how you separated. Please help. Thank you .

    • Hi Lauren,

      You can cut the old colour when you’re changing to a new colour or you can carry it up the inside of your piece.

  6. Where do the tassels go on the snood/cowl?

    • You can place them anywhere you’d like. There is no right or wrong placement and it’s up to your personal tastes. I placed mine, evenly spaced along the bottom round. I recommend trying the snood on and placing stitch markers where you’d like the tassels to go and then adding them to those spots after.

  7. For crying out loud enough with what a snood really is!!! It is a line in the show!!!
    This was a terrific pattern and my daughter loved it in the Wednesday black!!
    Thank You!

  8. Do you even know what a snood is? It most certainly is NOT a scarf. A snood is an airy lacy open work hair NET. I have made and worn snoods for 45+ years. Too bad you suckered me in I won’t be using any of your patterns. But have an amazing day.

    • Hi Sandra,

      This pattern was created based on the show Wednesday on Netflix, where this project was called a snood. Perhaps you should write to the show and let them know how you feel about them using the word snood to describe it. Despite being aware of what a traditional snood is, I called this project a snood, in order to be found via Google by folks that were hoping to make this project after watching the show Wednesday. However, as times change, words and language evolve and clearly some folks struggle with that fact. I’m certainly not the first person to use the word snood to describe a scarf that can be used as a hood and I doubt I’ll be the last.

  9. For the amount of yarn, is it 360 yards per ball of color or 360 yards in all? It’s confusing to me because of the double stranding. Thanks!

    • Hi Lisa,
      It’s one ball each of the colours so it’s 360 yards total per colour. In the notes you’ll see that I mention to either pull from both sides of the skein or to cake up a portion of the ball to make holding the double strands easier.

  10. What does the back of the snood look like?
