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.

After designing the Schneeflöckchen hat, I was so in love with the patterning that I wanted to create a pair of socks using the same pattern.


This simplistic and beginner-friendly sock design is worked cuff down. The sock is worked with two colours, with every third round being a colourwork round. The cuff and toe contain some subtle scallops for an added detail.
