I'm looking for a knit pattern for a snood to catch up my hair. It would be worn in addition to a Elizabethan hat. I would like for it to be kind of an airy open lace design. I had a great one from (she coughs) the 60's back when the first "Romeo & Juliet" movie came out. But can I find it? Alas, no. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

OOPs, maybe I should have posted this under the patterns part, but here's what I'm wondering - would a circular design with a gathering string/cord at the top work? Or perhaps it should be approached more like a bag? Thoughts?

This one is crocheted but it may give you an idea on how to make a knit version. It has a headband which would keep it more secure. I haven't tried it yet. It's lovely, beaded with a rose.

Go to the June 28th entry here. A doily converted into a snood/hat?? I would use it as a snood. Could be either.

Good luck, mwyn

What I've always done is make a circular doily and run elastic or a drawstring through the outermost row. There are enough different doily patterns out there that you could have an entire wardrobe of snoods, enough to wear a different one every festival day.

there are enough different doily patterns out there you could have a snood AND a lace hat for every day. I've seen fabirc muffin caps with lace OVER them so the fabric highlights the lace. Fantastic if not accurate.

This site is a crochet bun cover. However it shows/tells you how to work over the elastic piece.

Oh, would that I could go to the festival each day, but alack, (sigh), verily I have not the means.

In truth, I would like a different costume for each week of the fest.

Anyway, thanks, for the suggestions. I saw one pattern (much like the pattern Ramona posted a link to) that included beads. So, I think I will make this an ongoing project. Doilys, net patterns - so many ideas are percolating in my head! I have a friend who has a costume/dress shop at the local Renn-Faire, and perhaps I'll steer my experiments her way. I'm intriqued by the historically inaccurate lace-over-muffin caps. Would I be too bold as to inquire wherefore these were seen? I would venture a guess that they were not seen at the Renn-Faire in Bristol (WI)It is amazing to see the different costumes. Originally, they tried to go for historically accurate costumes at this faire, but the money is in letting people do whatever - and so the faire has adapted. I do love our true Elizabethan costumed court, though I suspect my DH loves the Xena wanna-be-s.
