Since I can remember, I have always loved snow. There is something magical about the first snowfall of the season. To watch the snowflakes fall always brightens up my mood and brings me joy. I decided to name the pattern “Schneeflöckchen” which means “little snowflake” in German because I knit the first sample of this hat design for my daughter.
This simple and beginner-friendly colourwork hat is worked from the brim to the crown. The easy colourwork motif throughout the hat is reminiscent of snowfall and the pattern in the crown resembles a snowflake. The brim is worked as a double brim for extra warmth and comfort. The hat is fitted but could also be worked as a slouchy beanie by simply adding length to the body of the hat.
