Fayme Harper

Fiber artist Fayme Harper has been crocheting 45 years since her mother taught her as a child. She has also been knitting for 38 years since she learned with her left-handed father at the age of 14 from library books. Read all about Fayme in her bio. She is a third generation crochet artist, with her two daughters following in her footsteps as the fourth generation.

Being a child during the creative renaissance of hippy days, it wasn't a long stretch before she figured out designing her own projects was a lot more fun and satisfying than figuring out written patterns. She figures if she ever has enough time, she could crochet and knit an entire house. Her motto is 'Use it up, Wear it out, Make It Do or Do Without.' and thus every little tiny scrap and gauge square of knitting or crocheting ends up in a project at some point.

Her four years in college were spent taking every art class she could including pottery, oil painting, needlecrafts, and photography. Her other fiber skills include stick weaving, tatting, macrame', embroidery, needle punch, quilting and sewing. Never one to sit still for long, she also enjoys traditional archery, jewelry making, tribal belly dancing, and writing poetry and lyrics.

She lives in Southern CA with her boyfriend, who is a well-known fletcher, and their two cats Wallop and Rocky.

need a pattern please

I am wondering along with the video if you have written instructions, for me it works better. I am not an audio learner. Cypress, Texas

i think its a joke when someone puts a video on without the pattern, its like see spot run, how fast can spot run..........before he trips on his nose and has to start all over again

I commented on the video to clear up the increases that folks were misunderstanding but I want to comment here too I finished my first snood I discovered I do Not have the face for a snood haha I didn't need the pattern I just remembered the video - chain single crochet in the next chain For increases I sc in the same loop that I chained in The video cut off the primary explanation for increases so I did my best from the description she gave and it turned out fine I used I Love This Yarn I really don't but it's cheap enough for a beginner I have hair down to my tailbone and my snood was definitely not long enough for that much hair My guess sarasmileaz is that if we make them bigger in diameter that's going to allow for better hanging Mine ended up being tightRead More like a hair net so that could be why it looked so bad on me I looked more like a roadside diner waitress than a maiden Blocking might also help to stretch it out but I've never blocked so I'm not sure especially with such an awkward shape I just learned how to crochet weeks ago I think we'll also want to use something stretchier I just used yarn I had left over from a lapghan since I wasn't sure how it would turn out I highly recommend Russian Joining for this project if you have to join I needed about more of yarn to finish

I crocheted my first Snood. Didn't come out too bad. But I wanted it longer. It barely came to the end of my neck. Didn't hang down long like the one in the video. Could this be due to the type of yarn that is used? What would be the best type of yarn to use...example: Acrylic, cotton etc. Thanks.. Sara. PS.. you can see my pics here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2100148908214.2108939.1380150706&type=1&l=b337da0f6f

I thought making it larger than a dinner plate would work, but now I'm thinking more increases would be the better route. I made one last night and it was more like a hair net than a snood. I'm also thinking a stretchier / softer yarn will give it more play so it will hang better.

I ,too would like the pattern. The video is good but hate to be watching and crocheting at the same time.I do love the snood and want to make some for my daughter-in-law. I think she will love them. I may be able to get my granddaughter to wear one or two. Thank you Patti

How can I get the pattern in print so I don't have to keep going back to the video. Like a stitch by stitch pattern. I love the Snood but its hard to do when you have to keep coming back to the video. Thank You LittleSneakers

Fayme Harper How are you I was looking at one video on how to make Snoods. I love it indeed I would love to make one in cotton with Pearly Pearl in every hole I guess. Can you help me with that Idea. I am trying to make myself a classic Snoods that is Chic indeed. Thanks Fayme Hope to hear from you soon by for now London Ontario Canada
