In ‘The Magic Flute’, opera by Wolfgang A. Mozart, this story about good and evil, Sarastro the high priest of an enlightened brotherhood abducts Pamina, whose mother is the evil Queen of the Night. to save her daughter, the Queen sends Prince Tamino who immediately falls in love with Pamina. predictably, love and goodness triumph, Sarastro overcomes the Queen of the Night, Tamino and Pamina are united after many twists and turns.

the meandering ways towards final triumph are reflected in the serpentine cables of the pattern.

this pattern is the more delicate, feminine version of the “Tamino” sock pattern. Both were inspired by Elsebeth Lavold’s book “Viking Patterns for Knitting”, where you can find many more great stitch patterns to play with in your own designs.

Toe setup chart was missing 2 sts and toe description was accidentally given for a plain toe instead of the ribbed one shown in the pictures.
