Throwback Thursday – Pan's Snood
For this edition of Throwback Thursday we have the Pan's Snood. The Pan's Snood was designed to celebrate the launch of Garnsurr's Pan when it arrived at Knit With Attitude. This luscious and interesting blend is perfect for little accessories and one skein projects.
Pan is an earthy blend of 70% Buck Moahir and 30% Dala sheep. All hand dyed by the women of Garnsurr. A social integration project for refugee women in Norway. The colours range from dark, rich and earthy to lighter vibrant tones, the women's own cultural heritage often result in surprising combinations but always with a beautiful result. The amazing quality of a hand dyed yarn on a more unusual base than the merino we are so used to seeing. A plump 3-plied sport weight yarn with a rustic hand and an incredible sheen due to the long buck mohair fibres. It blooms beautifully adding a softness to stitches and details.

The Garnsurr Pan is all knit up! I made a cosy snood and here is a detail. I’m calling it Pan’s Snood after the yarn and it’s knit from one skein. It’s blocking away at the moment but will be ready for Yarnporium on the @knitwithattitude stand. #knitting #garnsurr #pan #panssnood #knitwithattitude

'With the Pan's Snood I wanted something to evoke Pan, the god of the wild, of woodlands and nature. A criss-crossing pattern of slipped stitches and yarn over eyelets repeat across the entire piece. Like the dense woodland canopy, letting dappled light through tree branches. These stitches are all softened by the blooming of the yarn, creating a magic undulating texture perfect for wearing around your next as you walk through the autumn woods' - George
