Tamino is the handsome prince in ‘The Magic Flute’, opera by Wolfgang A. Mozart, who has to undergo many trials and pass ordeals to win the girl he loves. the meandering ways he has to go towards wisdom and final triumph are reflected in the serpentine cables of the pattern.

the socks are worked cuff down and the pattern was 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.
